Your truck has a GCWR of 20K and the trailer weights 17.5K, so basically just figure out how to lighten the truck up so it only weights 2500lbs with you and all passengers and contents loaded in it. Either that or upgrade all of the main components like frame, axles, brakes, tires etc. to that of a 2004 F450 then your good to go. Probably cheaper just to trade it for a 450 though.
