You will probably want a higher number than the f150 for that purpose I suggest at least something in the 250- 2500 range and in dually form.Oh well, that was short lived. HA HA. F150 incoming. I need a truck that can pull at least 10,000 lbs now. We just started a new venture building storage sheds, greenhouses, and other shelters on our site, then trailered to their locations. My truck will be the tow truck for this operation. Mav won't cut it for that. Wife might still get one however to replace the patriot.
