I only towed with my first 2011 once but it was smooth and comfortable as can be. I was pulling a 28' enclosed car hauler with a 70 chevelle. About 10 or 11k lbs

So far I have towed my Montana 3295RK close to 1,000 miles with mine. It does a far better job than the 06 King Ranch with 6.0 PSD I had before. I really like the way the gearing is spaced out in the new trans.

Alright thanks yall for the replies. I'll mainly be towing a 24 foot gooseneck with a tractor on it. I think it'll do good espically with the new 6 speed trans. I plan on getting a 6.7 soon.

just traded in my 2008 6.4, when that was new it was the smoothest truck i ever owned [had 2 dodges and 2 chevys] My new 2011 6.7 has 3500 miles on it and I have hated it since Day 1. This is the worst ride i have ever owned. Tried towing my 14' trailer and still rough ride. Put 500lbs of weight in bed no difference. Had tires changed no diff. Dealers wont work with me they are saying that it is a characteristic of the truck and there is nothing wrong with it. Still trying to get an FSE out. Hopefully you get a good one. I didn't and Ford Customer Service is the worst!

B&W. I've installed both and think the quality and the mechanism of the B&W is far superior to the pop-up.

I have the B&W with a 4" offset B&W ball. I have towed an 8k bumper pull from Ms to Mt at 70-75 mph up hills and bucking a headwind pushing it to find a weak spot. The truck didn't falter, the trip would have stretched the headbolts on a 6.0 (shorter trip to Springfield Missouri did in the 07). I pulled my 16k f'ver to Iowa, from 65-75 mph and never had an issue w the truck.

Last trek from NE TX th Phx AZ, mostly flat, 1200+ miles, no issues.

Stock, this truck does what you need and more. It's ride, like a one ton truck with a great interior and decent ride. If I wanted a butt cushion, I would have got a duropad, they ride like a Ford...Lincoln. A truck is a truck is a truck.

Towing, there is no problem pulling whatever you need to, it will not give you 30 mpg in the process, but it will tow safely and securely. There is another thread here of a new truck pulling heavy equipment from Texas to Canada..
