How far will you be towing?

I got a bit lusty on this when I went for an oil change... yesterday - but it was 62K.

Here's 4x4 Lariat by me for 19K

100K miles nothing for an f150.... even repairs and or upgrades are not a killer...

+1 on the f-150 - we have an 04 lariat super crew with 140000 rounds on it and the 5.4 litre . we live on the lake so mostly used during hunting season now but used it to tow my 24ft twin engine skater to larger water and wouldn't even know it was back there . the only maintenance has been brakes ,tires ,and an alternator other than oil and fluid changes . been a great truck .
gas mileage kinda sucks though

I think MC should just include one with every new boat purchased.
