I gotta get some better pics...but hooked up the boat to my new Double Cab TB this weekend...... Went from a 13 F150 FX4 ecoboost with 2" level front/rear and Nitto Ridge Grapplers to the 5.3 Custom TB..... Suspension and brakes handled the boat FAR better than the F150 with similar suspension setup. Brakes were a very noticeable upgrade over the f150. Power wise the 5.3 was sufficient but the Ecoboost had soooo much more to offer. Boat loaded with trailer is just shy of 8k lbs. Overall I'm very happy with the TB. The ecoboost was a great truck, but that is such a complicated engine as mileage was increasing I was getting more and more worried about costly repairs. I had an 07 Tahoe with 5.3 with 187,000 miles without a single issue.
Not sure of the exact tounge weight but my 2020 5.3 Trail Boss drags my 18ft G3 around the country like it's hardly even there. And with the stellar low range 4wd and Duratracs, I really don't even need a legit boat ramp to launch it. ??
