Anybody tow with a Gen 1 L? MPG? Issues? ETC
Anybody tow with a lightly modded Gen 1 Lightning? How about a modded one? How do the E40D's hold up? Towing in overdrive okay? I have had a 99 F150 Lariat, a 00 XLT Expedition, a 00 F150 XLT, and a 00 Eddie Bauer Expedition, all 5.4's, and want to try something different possibly. Something that should have a better torque curve/gearing, and something that I can possibly play with on the side and have a little fun with.
I would be pulling around 4800-5300 pounds when I do tow (open car trailer and a car), sometimes 600-1100 miles in a day. Never had a problem in any of the 5.4 trucks, except for air ride on the Expeditions, and general lack of power on hills.
