Re: Towing w/ 4.2 v6 F150

is it a manual or auto? How many gears does it have. All this determines how much you can tow. An auto will pull more than a manual.

Re: Towing w/ 4.2 v6 F150

For your specific vehicle and your options, just check the owners manual and the door tag. The door tag will have your max GVWR and your owners manual will tell you all you need to know about your tranny, rearend ratio, etc. and how they effect your maximum tow rating.
