Re: towing capacity
I read up on this too. With a properly installed class 4 receiver (including 7 pin harness and trailer brake module) you should be able to tow 7200lbs max. The specs for the 4.7L engine are rated at 6000lbs properly equiped. I dont thing they can exagerate those numbers. If I buy a vehicle that can pull 6000, and I buy a trailer that is 5000 and blow up my tranny, I would have to blow up the dealer.
Now that 7200lbs is the GVWR which means you need to buy a 5000 - 6000lbs boat (including trailer) so you have room to add skis, ropes, cooler, food, life jackets that add weight to that number. Does that make sense?
