Those HP / TQ numbers were just what the factory prints. Of course as with all vehicles they are all different. 2 identicle vehicle from any manufacturer will have different numbers on different dynos with all kinds of altitudes/humidities/temperatures affecting outcome.

I recently saw a TV truck show that showed the same truck with only about 175 HP until their sponsor gadget miraculously brought it up to 345 HP.

Again, just numbers thrown out there, when it comes down to it, TOW SAFELY ! Whatever you tow with.

I tow an artic fox 21-5r 23' fifth wheel with a 2001 ford 150 supercrew 2 wheel drive, 5 1/2 foot bed. Extended pin on 5er and slider on hitch(never had to use slider). Been using this set up for 6 years. When I first had this setup all the conventional knowledge and literature said this doesn't work with a shortbed. Seems to work for me
