2021 f250 xlt 6.7

Just made the jump to diesel boys & girls!
I'm pretty excited about towing the 328RL Keystone Outback with this rig this season
For a 7k+ truck it sure does get up and move.
The F150 Ecoboost was a great truck and handled this trailer for 4yrs.
It has 2,738 #'s payload and the Camper Pack, which adds 1 spring heavier in front ; a rear swaybar & a helper spring pack for a slide in trailer....all nice additions.

Congrats. People don’t realize how much the low end torque helps on acceleration. Diesels will definitely get up and go.

Nice rig, congratulations! A lot of people that ride in my truck are shocked when I jump on it. They don’t realize how much hp and torque the 6.7 has. Punch it at 30mph on dry pavement and I can bust the rear end loose lol.

Let u8s know how it feels when you tow with it. I bet you have the "hitch itch" real bad now.

My son and I made the jumps ourselves- both 2017's and he opted for the Lariat, I the XLT since I'm pretty practical. I added some Banks upgrades, he's all stock. Nevertheless- we love them.
