Hahaha, yeah, those F150s are a little weak. I towed 8500lbs with a 5.4L F150 once that was only rated for maybe half that. Took like 3 years to get to speed. Felt like i was trying to speed up the rotation of the earth

and thats cool, i'm not too far from yah, just down in Waupaca county.

Can you PLEASE start using periods in your posts'? My god, run on sentences left and right.

Oh, and John, F-150'* have the highest towing capacity of any 1/2 ton truck on the market at 11,000lbs.

Even without the supercharger my 2005 with the 5.4 F150 could tow alot. Mine has the 3v version I am wondering if you drove the 2v version?

sorry used to aim. the 03 F-150 owners manual says a max towing capacity of 4000 something the trailblazer starts at around 5000 lbs. sorry forgot to say its a 2002 LT with the I-6. The stupid F-150 has the dual exhaust and I swear that when you hit the gas it doesnt go faster it just gets louder
