2016 F150, Max Tow package, 4x4 3.5 ecoboost supercrew

Available Mid-March Wanted to give forum members first dibs before I put it on the open market. Available mid March or possibly earlier, depending on when my F250 comes in.

Re: Covered vs open mooring

You're welcome! I didn't want to install a galvanic isolator, so I just hook up my MinnKota charger whenever I have the boat sitting on the trailer at home.

Shocker tailer hitch

Anyone use these? They make a lot of sense when you start thinking about how the boat is sitting on the trailer and getting bounced around by the truck/trailer interface.

Re: truck repair

By the way, if anyone on the forum is interested, I'm going to be selling my 2016 F150 3.5ecoboost in two months or so. Decided to order a F250 for towing the boat.

PM me if interested, I can send pics etc.
