    A year after selling my Cobra and moving to Texas. I have been itching to buy another Mustang.But at 6'7" I need my space so I picked up the next best thing. A 2010 F-150 with 40k miles on the clock and a tow package. Should make a great tow rig come sometime next year when I can afford to get back into a money pit.

    Here are a few pics.

    Them slumps do suck! Youll get back into a groove, ordering, modding before you know. Nice rig!

    Nice ride! That's like my company truck, the 4.6 has plenty of power unless you try to pull a boat twice as long as the truck

    A trailer with a car is gonna weigh a whole lot more than that boat!!

    The 5.4 must be an option, I though the newer F150 V8 was 5.4 standard. We have a 08 Expedition with the 5.4 and it has great power, but haven't pulled anything with it.

    I figured a car hauler and race car could be as low as 3800.Shouldn't be an issue the trucks rated to tow nearly twice as much.

    I used to have a 02 king ranch with 5.4 had 7000 lbs hooked up to it a few times and it towed fine.Loved that truck but hated the highway mpg. Thats why I went after a 4.6 this go around.
