I think the truck would be great but am concerned about the 5.3(much lower torque than a 6.0) combined with the high rear axle ratio.
Sorry, forgot to mention that my Ford has the 5.4L V8. Tows like its not there.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
