or you can use common sense, F-150 means it can haul up to a half ton before the weight messes with the ride hieght and handling of the truck

If memory serves...stock light duty f150 can tow up to 5000lbs with a tongue weight of 500lbs. I've seen them with aftermarket equipment tow up to 12000 but I wouldn't suggest it.

well if your wanting to know how much you can pull with a half ton, it pretty much varies, now i dont exactly know how much for each set up, but it depends on what motor and transmission set up you have, how well does the motor run, little things like that, and since you have an 82, you most likely have the inline six or 400 (350-m, -w, or -c) most half ton trucks can pull anything, not very fast, but with my half ton, ive pulled trailer houses, semis, dump trucks, and other pick ups with out any problems, but speed will be the only issue

I thought that was its towing capacity. So i can tell this idiot that he cant haul 19 tons at 55 mph with 15mpg with an 82 F 150? lol its what this guy said. haha

1988 f 150 custom, with the big straight six, I live in the flat lands......Am I good pulling this free... off Craigslist.... 23 foot Komfort....... 5th wheel or not Cause I'm fricking doing it peeps....

The factory towing capacity for a early 90s F series is 6250 lb if it came from Factory with the towing package. It's easy to tell if it has the towing package just look under the rear bumper and see if it has the factory 6 pin trailer plug. you have to understand that when these trucks were rated they were running 5w 30 motor oil with a tiny transmission intercooler, 3.55 gears and Sissy 235/75 Tires. Upgrade to 10w40 oil, 11"x 15" transmission intercooler, 3.73 rear gears and 31"-10.50 LT tires. you'll have no problem Towing 8000 pounds at 55mph. (With a receiver hitch) I drive a 1993 f150 supercab with the 300 inline six using this particular combo everyday.
