Have you towed anything yet? I'm loooking at getting a F150 ecoboost and can't decide if I should go for the 3.73 or if the 3.55 will be fine. Nice choice by the way!

I have a 3.5L ecoboost (although 2013) with the 3.55's, and it has no problem pulling a loaded truck and loaded 20' boat around. I go to lakes with lots of hills around them (ozarks, table rock, etc) and it rarely drops down to 4th gear when climbing a hill. It usually stays in 6th, but will go to 5th for most climbs, and rare to find it dropping more than a single gear. I wouldn't hesitate at all have the 3.55's.

That being said, if I did it over again, I'd get the 3.73's. Gas mileage isn't awesome with any of them, so might as well get the tall gears.
