2009 Ford F-150 XL 4dr SuperCrew Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I bought a 2009 F150 super crew about a year and a half ago. I really enjoy the truck. It has a 4.6l engine with a 3.73 rear axle. I tow a 30ft travel trailer that weight 9000 lbs and to my surprise i was able to tow with no problems upstate NY. One thing i did add was rear air bags in the suspension so it would sit so much with the weight of the camper. I also tow the camper on the beach and still haven't had any problems. There is a lot of room inside the truck also and i cant go anywhere with out someone complementing me on the truck
The room in the cabin and the power.
The turning radius is horrible and when i am towing if i am going up a hill and he truck downshifts unless i let of off the gas right before it shifts the tranny slams into place which kind of scares me. I read a lot about it online and apparently ford knows about if and doesn't have a fix for it y
