The max allowed on the F250/F350 is 15,000 GCWR with only 8700 lbs trailer tow capacity with the 4.10 axle, or 13500 GCWR with the same 8700 lbs. trailer tow capacity on the 3.73 axle.
Am I missing something here?
"Am I missing something here?..... YES!!!
Youre interpretation of the Info you have is WRONG
Here are the Ratings of my 99 F250 straight from the owners Manual
GVWR (amount of weight i can put IN the *TRUCK*)= 8,800 lbs
GTWR (Gross Trailer Weight- How heavy of a trailer i can tow)= 13,100 lbs
GCWR (The amount of the tow vehicle plus the amount of the trailer) = 20,000 lbs
So im not sure where youre getting that a F250 can only two 8900 lbs..
Says right there i can tow up to 13,100 pounds as long as my truck fully loaded with trailer and toys etc weighs less than 20,000 pounds (GCWR) I hope this clarifies a little bit for you...
PS the 15,000 you got for the f250 is for the newer 6.0 trucks who have a Gross Trailer Weight Restriction of 15,000 pounds.. meaning they can pull up to 15000 pounds
