  1. I'm going to wait until either GM offers the 10 speed or there's more comparisons between the Ford Super Duty with the 7.3 gas.
  2. It'll be the only 1/2 ton truck without a 30+ gallon option or standard feature. Yeah it would be nice to have a 40 gallon fuel tank. That way you can drive ~400 miles if your MPG during the tow is around 10.
  3. It's going to be even better in 2021 when Ford starts selling the updated F150s. Should be some pretty good incentives on Ram 1500 and GM 1500 pickups by then.
  4. Hopefully they improve the fuel tank capacity for 2021.
  5. I'm going to wait until GM offers towing mirrors and larger fuel tank. Trying to tow with a ~26 gallon fuel tank is comical. You'll be fueling up every 250 miles or less.
  6. Torque is generally a by product of trying to strive for better fuel efficiency.
  7. At the end of the day, acceleration is based on horse power, or the ability to do work over time. I'm not surprised.
  8. +1. Latest video reviews are good but it would be nice to have a larger gas engine ie. 8.1L V8, with the new 10 speed auto. Would bridge the gap between the 6.6L V8 and the Duramax.
  9. It may not increase the ratings. The stock 18" tires have approximately the same load rating as your 20" tires ~ 2,700lbs. While there are far more Load Range E tires available in a similar size to the stock 18" 265/65/18 (upsize to 275/65/18), it is possible that the limitation is the actual axle and not the tires. I don't think we can tell how much "true" extra capacity is left in the rear axle without actually weighing the tow vehicle + trailer. But it is possible to quickly exceed the RAWR if you're loading the bed up as well as having a high tongue weight on the hitch. I'm not even sure you can take the actual tongue weight of the trailer as the actual weight placed onto the rear axle since there is a lever action going on since the bumper pull doesn't sit right over the rear axle like a 5th wheel would. I would surmise the rear axle could be seeing 1.5x the actual tongue weight of the trailer.
  10. Thanks! Out of curiosity, does your truck have the 20" wheels? I'm wondering if the RAWR is limited by load capacity/range of the factory tires moreso than the 3.42 rear end and axle.
  11. Would someone be able to post a picture of their trailering/weight capacity sticker on their driver's side door jamb like in this link: https://www.tfltruck.com/2018/10/2019-chevy-silverado-1500-trail-boss-tow-payload-specs/ I'm interested in the Rear Axle Weight Rating for a 6.2L with the max trailering package.
