I see there is a new 24,000 / 26,000 GVW F53 chassis for 2008. I saw the info here...
https://www.fleet.ford.com/truckBBAS/non-html/Q156.pdf I was wondering if anyone has heard this and what the GCWR might be ?

I had not heard this before. And my "guess" on GCWR would be 6000lbs more than the GVW. So either 30,000 or 32,000.

Looks like they hung a new rear on the chassis and upped the GVW. I haven't read anything yet in the form of a Press Release so as far as I know this isn't a product yet.

We might get to see one of these in Louisville this December if not sooner. The 08 chassis should be available sometime in late July or August if they pretty much run the same as other chassis manufacturers.

Well, according the link that is listed, the chassis is a done deal with GVW's of 24000 and 26000 available. So I would presume you will be able to tow 6000lbs with it.
