I'm willing to bet that the boat was too heavy for the truck. Things like this happen when you haul a heavy load without the proper tow vehicle.

If you have to stop quick then things like this happen regardless of how far you haul (cough cough 1mile @ TxsRiverRat). This could be a '93 205 one day

It's not always about fuel economy, it's about safety as well. Just because a tow rig can roll it doesn't mean it can stop it.

Rat, do some research on the toy box pulling the space shuttle. The shuttle had assistance helping it simulate that the toy truck was pulling 100% of it. There is no way that the truck stopped the shuttle either without further assistance. I'm sure there is legal documentation saying do not haul a shuttle or equivalent weight. Also note that I'm not saying a f150 could haul the shuttle with its 11,000# towing weight, because it can't either. Your max haul weight is right at 5,000# probably.

Way safer with a navigator or something equivalent. No matter if it's 1 mile or 5 miles, you're not the only person on the road and it only takes one idiot to total your boat.

Lol nope

The 6cyl taco that is 2 door with the 1/4 space for a back seat. If I sat facing the center of the truck the passenger seat would not be able to slide back into the proper position because there is not enough room and no I'm not a fat person.

He needs that f150 though. That thing is sweet. I just would prefer white.

I bet it does. But for $62k I would sacrifice the off road package and get the F250 king ranch.

Too many people in Texas have lifted off road trucks that never see dirt. The F250 will still fit in the car wash where the F350 is hand wash only. I love the F350 but would get the 250 in king ranch with nav, sunroof etc, spray in liner w GN ball, 4x4 for $55 ish here.

King Ranch a sweet ride too..... I could do a bunch of refurb, restore and/or modify my 2002 Eddie Bauer explorer and still have some coin left over.. plus it's heavy enough to tow my PS..
