Limited, max tow, sunroof, rear entertainment, heated and cooled seats, power 3rd row and rail gate, Remote start, power running boards, no garbage auto level suspension black on black, ~$16,000.

Dealer gave me what I wanted for my and they did the whole thing at my home.

Yes it’s a 14, but the trucks that were $13-23k more didn’t offer anything over this truck. Excellent shape, and its never had a receiver in the hitch.

Congrats. If you find you need a new drop shank for your WD hitch I have a 14,500lb one collecting dust I'd like a fraction of retail for.

The chassis/front suspension/wheels are basically F-150, Lift kits/suspension parts share part numbers.

A 2/2 lift and stepping up to 20” rims makes them look a lot more “rugged” for sure.

I’ll snap some interior shots later, the front is basically F150, it has rear captains chairs.

lifting the rear is the "hard" part.

I have an Equalizer so it’s adjustable up and down a fair bit.

wait this is a 5.4 truck itdn't it
It is a 5.4 truck, it’s not a rocket ship sadly, but still rated for 9200lbs with the max tow. Still punchier than my 03 suburban was.

That being said, the 5.4 was known for 2 issues, Plugs and Cam phasers. Plugs were changed in 09 design wise (and I made them replace all the plugs anyways as condition of sale), cam phasers were rev’d in 2011, so this truck shouldn’t have issue there or is at least low risk. Also, if some how it blows up I’d slap a Coyote into it in a heartbeat.

isn't it 8700lbs?

even still. 1500lbs of people/dogs/gear in the truck... brings you to 7200lbs of towing capacity.

you're in the green still, right- by a good a mount??

Yup, 8700 my bad, 9200 is short wheel base 4x2.

the towing capacity of non max tow Burbs also kinda killed a Burb for me.

Limited trim Expos after a certain year all came with Max Tow until 2018.
