Towing/Hauling question

I want to haul a suzuki samurai (1800-2000 lbs) in the bed of my SRW CC 4x4 F350 and tow a 27' camper about 7k. Will this be too much? My GVW is 9900. Im guessing I will be right at the limits of the truck but I see much heavier loads all day long.

2000 F350 Crew Cab 4x4
Muffler dumpped
12.5mpg city 15 HWY

Wish list:
Billet Grill
3" leveling Kit
Trailer Brake Controller
Clear Headlights
Spank my roomates 05 Cummins

You'll do it fine. How are you getting the samurai in the bed?

People MASSIVELY overload the ol' 7.3s everyday. I'm amazed at some of the things I see being pulled. You'll be perfectly fine.

I wouldn't bat an eye. Loaded my CCLB SRW behind my dad's CCLB SRW on a 30' Gooseneck Trailer (Approx 5K lbs, possibly more) to tow it home when the clutch went out. I had no problem towing it at all 65mph up hills (could have gone faster, but played it safe). The 6.0 Cooler on his truck, definite MUST for any 7.3 Owner.

Shouldn't be a problem, I've had 4100lbs in the bed w/ 1 ton springs and I wouldn't think you would hit that with your samurai+tongue wt. How are you getting a samurai in the bed? I'd put the heaviest part of the samurai toward the cab of course

I know that Samis are small, but can you really fit one in a truck bed?

I want to see a picture of this! I did not think it would fit? Are you going to have to go over the wheel wells? How tall will the load be?

Weight wise you should be ok or at least right on the limit. My 5er pin weight is about 1600 and my 90 gal tank full (800 ish lbs) puts me at 10,500 on the truck and 10k ish on the trailer wheels. Best thing to do is load up and go to the scales.

Now this "limit" is only the legal limit of the rig. I have seen MANY times people running around here with massive loads on their PSDs. by the letter of the law, you can hook a 24kgvwr tandem dual gooseneck to your truck and put an empty box on it and you are breaking the law. Again this is the legal limit, of course the truck will be fine, but the law says you are over weight.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
