Towing capacity

Asked by Dec 01, 2007 at 01:54 AM about the 1988 Ford F-150

Question type: General

I recently bought a 1988 F-150 XLT King Cab with the extended bed, 6 cylinder with a 5 speed stick.  Unfortunately, there was no manual with it.  I have been trying to find specs for it, especially towing capacity, as I'm looking to get a camper as well.  Does anyone have the info or know where to find it??

You should be able to tow 4-5,000 lbs. with this. I regularly towed junk cars with my '82 F150 with 302 V-8, sometimes had 6-7k lbs. with the tow dolly included. Other than that you could look on Ebay, usually easy to find manuals there for fairly cheap.
