I followed the directions and didn't think about it. Probably.

What have y’all towed?

In 24,000 miles I finally need to move something over 4,000lbs so I’m calling in a favor to tow my 6,500lb tractor.

In that time I’ve saved about $3,200 in gas over the cost of an F150, plus about $1,600 less in insurance, and the truck costs about $14,00 less than an F150.

How much do y'all think you're saving?

The surprising part was 43 mpg on a 300 mile round trip with four adults in the cab and four golf bags/clubs in the bed with 90% of it highway driving 60-70 mph 😳

Nice wooden kayak! How much does it weigh?
I've settled on carrying my 10' kayak in the bed with the tailgate down and bed extender at the lowest position. It's the least backpain, and the most "pre-loaded" position I can stow it in for travel at "above highway speeds".
I started with my kayak at the highest position with the tailgate up and the bed extender up. My truckbox threw it off by being 3" taller than them and jacked up the bow so it rode at an incline. It also liked to tip over when being pulled up onto the arrangement...
My goal is to have as much of my duck hunting gear packed in the kayak for the tow as possible, so when I arrive before dawn, I can get underway as soon as possible, and with as little lower back pain as possible.
When I dropped the tailgate and bed extender, I gained the ability to put 2 dozen decoys on the bow, the oar on the hull, cooler behind the seat, and milk crate on the stern. I used to keep the trolling motor on the stern too, but the bouncy ride broke the transom I built, so now I ride with it in the bed and install it after afloat.
I can also say, the lowest bed extender / tailgate position allows me to back down the boat ramp and "launch" it and retrieve it with a lot less effort than when I was hauling it up onto the bed exteder at full height by hand, or when I was putting it on the roof of my car.
Thanks! I would say my 17" kayak weighs about 55 lbs(ish) and kind of bulky to move around. I'm going to post some new pics of my setup (still working on it) and how I'm going to load my kayak by myself. Also, I didn't get the yak-bone because I needed the hitch for my bike rack.

Almost a whole cubic yard fits in the bed, even with my toolbox installed. You could fit a cubic yard if you don’t have a truck box in the way.
$44/yard is Way better than buying by the bag, and moma’s “raised bed” is coming along.

You got your canoe dirty AND your truck dirty. 😱

Daa-Amn @rch75 you got that thing squatting.
How did the steering feel?

You are at or probably above 1500# in the back.

Here's what 750# looks like with $100 air bags helping.

I won't do 99% of everything you all are doing, but it makes me wish I ordered 4k towing *just* in case. lol
