Iíll post some tomorrow. Custom Autos By Tim builds a great conversion. I bought mine from the guy that had it converted with about 30k miles on it. Iíve since put about 20k on it. Love it.

I also like the look of the Raptor but didn't feel that the towing capacity fit my needs. I opted to build my own Raptor based on a 2020 F250. I used a Carli suspension system, Fuel Wheels, 13.5x37 Nito's, built a set of flares to accept the Raptor marker lights and built a grill bracket to support the Raptor grill lights that mounts behind the factory grill.

What do you like, what do you not like etc.

Related, how much fudge room is there in in posted tow ratings? Like if it says 7500lbs do you think 8500lbs is suicide or just cause to drive carefully?

Payload payload payload... you can pull anything... it is how much you can carry that is the limit first... that yellow sticker on the Bpiller tells you everything you need to know... payload is anything you add to the vehicle after it leaves the factory...

3/4 ton gas have lots of payload 3/4 ton diesels before 2020 had a bit more payload than a 1/2 ton.. YMMV...
there is no fudge room... you can do it for 5 miles say from storage to the lake... but not suggested to go 400 miles...
