what can this truck pull?

Asked by Apr 30, 2009 at 10:37 AM about the 1993 Ford F-250

Question type: General

I am trying to find out what this truck can pull on a trailer.  It has a 6 cylinder gas engine and gets hot with a heavier load.  We are not sure if it is because of the load or if something under the hood is not working properly.

you probably have something wrong under the hood because that motor can be luged like a diesel. i have a 86 300 inline six and it will pull my 16ft cattle trailer full of cows with no problems

powerloss isnt anything just change the oil and check the sending unit for the fan cause if that little puppy is heating up like that theres gotta be somthing wrong with the cooling system and so what if its a 16 year old truck all the old ones are the best fords chevy and dodges never die young i have a 69 ford f250 and my grandpa used to have a 56 ford f100 that ran when he sent the thing to the junk yard

Hey John, This site is for real men with real trucks, not girls who drive chevy's. Lol You don't even have a truck, and if your buddy was a real buddy, he would just give you a hug and apologize for being a bad influence on you.
