2006 F250 w/ 8" Lift Trying to Tow Offshore Boat
Good morning. I have been lurking the PS forum for a while and finally set up an account. I have a quick question that I am hoping for some help with.
I have a 2006 F250 6.0L with 20" Fuel Rims, 37x13.50 Open Country MTs, and an 8" Fabtech lift. I am looking to purchase a 28" Hydra-Sports offshore fishing boat that will get pretty close to 10,000 lb. wet and loaded with gear. As long as I get a drop hitch that allows me to keep the boat trailer level, will I run into any major issues towing the boat? Likewise, how bad do you think the back end of the truck is going to sag?
I am going to be keeping the boat at a marina, but I would like to be able to tow it down to the Keys (about 400 miles) and east coast of Florida on occasion. Thanks for any insight.
