Your going to love your new truck. We traded our 2017 F250 for a 2019 F350 dually and found that the ride and gas mileage to be close to the F250. Pulling 16k thru the mountains is an easy task for 6.7 diesel. Your payload is 44# more than ours.

I am assuming that that is a 2019 or 2020 F350 DRW, it must be a totally loaded unit as you state a payload of 5,436#, I thought the newer all aluminum bodies were closer to 6,000# for even a loaded unit. Our 2016 Ram Laramie 3500 DRW has a sticker payload of 5,411# which is only 25# less then your F350.
From what I understand most of the weight they saved by using aluminum was put back into the truck in bigger brakes etc., so the weight savings aren't really reflected in the payload numbers....my 2017 F350 is a Lariat with every option and my payload is 5,318

The simple answer with the OP’s signature TT would be NO!
Even towing 13,000+ with our 2016 Ram, we don’t slow down.

Yes it is. F250 was 2228 lbs.

Haven't hooked it up yet, but the F250 would cruise up and down these WV hills with the cruise set at 65 and never slow a bit. I expect the same performance with this truck.
