Mine is at 8500 miles and appears to be broken in, but it ran with almost no load for quite a while.

Also, I'll be keeping my 5.0 till the tires fall off. After that, It'll likely be a 2500/250 diesel and a second tiny car that can fit in parking garages lol. Honestly, the biggest plus of this truck was that it still fits in parking garages where I work 馃ぃ No, but that is a definite plus and its a cummins. My dad even is looking at swapping into one over his 3.5 ecoboost. He tows 10k regularly and has two bad turbos at 86k miles bc of it. So...yeah..it can tow 13k on an ecoboost...but for how long? Well, for my dad it was 86k miles. I'll bet mine lasts longer lol.

I still think you have to be insane to pull that much weight with an F150 of any flavor.

Durability aside, it pulls it like nothing is behind it. However, durability not aside, yeah I'd go into an HD perhaps. The 3.5 ecoboost is a monster, but as my grandpa used to say....no replacement for displacement.

Might pull fine power wise.... but I'll put my years wages on it that that trailer pushes and pulls that truck all over the road.

Exactly. People who say their f150 egoboost pulls that kinda weight just fine is full of shit
I wouldn't say they are full of s***, as the truck will pull that much weight, the issues are can it do it effectively, reliably, safely and without the driver having to "white-knuckle" it. Many of us would agree that the XD does the job and does it without much fuss, whereas anyone whose tried it with the F150 will say, if being honest, that it is a whole lot trickier and more work.

I had an ecoboost and it will pull it, but dont try to stop or go down a hill.
Ain't that the truth, Brother. The XD diesel in particular handles uphill AND downhill without any worries and without making the driver sweat while constantly managing the brakes and the transmission and the steering.

Having a Cummins before, but with Dodge logo.on, is why I got the Titan. I see the quality in Dodge as sub-par. My truck pulls like a bull is why I got it, plus the 100K warranty. I have the pro 4 but off-road is a joke, it is way to heavy for true off-roading. The very first day I bought it coming home from dealer I go off-road up a hill cuz I could in my Tundra, but with this I could feel myself sinking in the mud, and got stuck, I was so ashamed looking like a fool in my new 4x4 what a pig. The owner of the hill pulls me out, never again with this pig. She right around 8900 pounds wet. That said since I had the 17 at least 5 F 250 owners said they wish they looked at the Nissian.

I also never consider this truck an "off road" capable vehicle, even in Pro 4X trim.

4X4 for backroads, hilly gravel, and our all too present crappy winter snow, plus the occasional need for extra traction getting a trailer out of grass/mud/deep gravel.
