97-2003 f150 engine transmission towing

what engine and transmission and tow package should I look for in a 97-2003 f150 for towing?
I have a 24 foot pontoon boat that weighs around 2000 lb but has wind resistance.
I am looking at a 18-21 foot travel trailer also.

Engine 5.4L.
Trans 4R100 preferred or the 4R70w.
Rear 3:73 preferred or the 3:55.
Trans cooler.
Doubt if you will find the best combo but worth a lookfor.
Good luck.
