I did pull a small TT 3 or 4 times with an F150. In 1976 I was pulling a longer and heavier TT with a Plymouth Fury III. The 360 with the 707 trans pulled better than most of todays 1/2 ton trucks. Only problem was the car was low and the hitch lower,,, drag at times going for gas.

Many years ago, we had a 1969 Ford F100 with a big block 390. As many of you know, those old Fords did not have full-floating rear axles, and I found that out one day when we were returning from a firewood cutting trip. We had a cord of wood in the bed, and when we turned left onto a street, I saw the rear axle and tire depart the housing. That axle shaft was very strong to support all that weight. Jacked it up, shoved the axle and tire back in the housing, and drove slowly, stopping again several times before making it home. Replaced the worn axle shaft retainer, and didn't use that truck to haul heavy stuff again!
