Anyone have the 5th wheel towing capacity of a 2001-2002 drw F350 shorbed?
A shorty dually? Those were sorta rare, but Ford did produce some.
Assuming diesel engine, GCWR was 20,000 pounds. Weigh the wet and loaded truck full of diesel and with the normal folks and tools and 5er hitch in it, and subtract that weight from 20,000 and the answer is the personalized tow rating. On a dually, GCWR will be your limiter - you have plenty of GVWR for any trailer that doesn't overload the GCWR.
If it's a diesel 4x4, the wet and loaded truck probably weighs around 8,500 tp 9,000 pounds, so that leaves 11,000 to 11,500 as the heaviest trailer you can hook onto without busting Ford's weight ratings. Add about 500 pounds to the estimated tow rating if it's a 4x2.
That's the towing capacity per Ford. But lots of folks don't care what mama don't allow, they play their banjos anyhow. Wet and loaded trailers up to about 15,000 pounds are not unusual loads.
Ford's published tow rating of 12,400 pounds assumed your wet and loaded F-350 DRW PSD 4x4 CrewCab weighed only 7,600 pounds. When you weigh yours you'll probably see how ridiculous that number is.
Also looking for HP and torque ratings.
Assuming automagic tranny, 250 HP @ 2,600 RPM, 505 torque @ 1,600 RPM
However, mild hot-rodding (tuning) and driving by aftermaket gauges can result in about 300 horses and 600 torque without reducing engine longivity or reliability. For about $1,250 plus DIY installs, you can add my mods of gauges, intake, exhaust and mild towing chip. On a dyno run I had 281 horses and 590 torque at the rear wheels, which is more than 300 horses and 600 torque at the flywheel. Mine now has 182,000 mostly-towing miles on it and runs better than new.
