How many miles are on the your new truck? I hope the smaller V8 pulls a trailer ok for you. I have a Ford Expedition with a 5.4 in it. I pulled a 4 place trailer last weekend up to my cabin with 40 landscape timbers on it. I figured I had close to 4000 lbs on the trailer and I was real surprised on how well it pulled. The last time I pulled a trailer with a small V8 it pulled ok but it only got about 7 miles to the gallon and worked the hell out of the motor. God luck with the new truck. Riley
cool truck p-man, you'll like it alot. the 4.6 and 5.4 outpull the old v-8s by a bunch. they have a bunch more torque. i've been with ford for 13 years, so if you need any info on it, let me know..........
I never drove anything but a Ford until last year. Had 100K on a 97 F150. It will pull just fine. Great truck, could't get my local dealer to realize that I didn't want a fancy decked out truck when I was in the market to replace so bought a new Ram1500. We'll see how it holds up before I'm converted.
[8D] I have that same truck with the 5.4L and towing package. You can just about pull anything you want and still decent milage. I have a 4 place steel enclosed trailer and when I pull it full I still get around 11 mpg. Enjoy it You can't go wrong with Ford trucks.
