WP wins the nicest tow rig on TT as far as I can tell. Well done man, sharp and properly kitted for towing.

How much lift is the Carli? Any need for airbags for towing?

a local shop owner here in town has a Mega Raptor and he tows his X80 with it. Wish I had a picture to post.
Here's a pic of the truck. It's a beast

Carli uses fixed pricing so they are consistent no matter where you buy them. The system I used was their 3.5" Backcountry System. It cost me +/-$3k installed. I did not change the rear springs so no need for airbags. The ride is significantly better than stock.

Most think itís a body conversion hung on an old one. Ford dealer didnít believe me until they ran the vin.

My 6.7 as fitted above only gets 10 pulling about 75mph.

Iím running an icon lift. Stock rear springs as well, but I added bags to level it back out once the trailer is connected, they really donít effect the ride. Depends on the tongue weight of the trailer whether it causes the truck to sag.

Not sure about bad A, but the EcoD worked well.
