Does that apply to a tag trailer that won't gross over 7,000 pounds?
SIL just bought a new F-250 6.2L with 3.73 e-locker diff for occasionally towing an enclosed horse trailer with GVWR of 7,000 pounds. That pickup will mostly be his commuter car and grocery getter, but he tried to spec it so it would easily tow that trailer. His main concern was tongue weight, so most F-150s wouldn't work without being overloaded with 1,000 pounds of hitch weight, and the ones with the HD payload package were rare as hens teeth.
