Ya, I hate to say it, but you need a 250 Diesel rig. Raptor will be hella comfortable on that road, but hauling all that weight is not going to be really good for a gas burner in my opinion.
How often are you pulling the bigger boat? If more than once a week I would go F250. If you are towing once a month or so may be okay with Raptor. But man you are going to hate pulling that heavy boat with any half ton after you have been pulling it with a 3500.
I was just testing your loyalty. lol
Maybe not. Would be nice though, going down whoop-de-do road.
Bump stops for towing will triple your payload capacity and significantly increase towing capacity. I run a lot of whoops when towing my double stacker with my corvette on HREs and my autocross subaru and it's like it's not even there.
I know, right?
Raptor could work if you got some deavers and a weight distributing hitch maybe some extra wear on the drivetrain but i think the 6.2 and tranny is pretty solid
You forgot the airbags...
So I put the center console on the scale today. Had to borrow moms 2500. She weighs 7220. That is within the raptors 8k towing limit. Does everyone still think its a bad idea.
FYI moms cummins got 8.5 mpg on an 83 mile round trip to the scale.
