yes, the truck weither (F250, F350, etc) and suspension have more to do with it. a cclb 250 and ext sb 250 can tow the same. you may notice a difference in handling though.

I know thats in the manual but man can that truly be correct? I mean a DRW is a lot more stable towing than a SRW but all rated about the same?

True on that. With a cclb even a sb you can feel the diff over my extsb/lb truck. I want a cc but have no need for it thats the only thing I want a new pickup so I was looking at the ext cabs.

Although the dually can handle more weight than the Ford manual says, you still can't change the sticker that says the GCWR. If you're over and wreck, insurance will tell you to F off.
