Talking Wish to thank everybody

Hi everyone I just want to thank you all for helping me decide whak kind of engine and rear end for my truck to pull my 7000# trailer. This is what I got..a 2007 Ford F150 5.4 Triton with 4:10 rear end. It also has overdrive so I dont know what gear ratio it would be, if its in OD is that 4:10 or is it 4:10 out of overdrive. The dealer didnt have the manual, and they are sending me one so I hope it will tell. It also had a Teknosha but it looked like the front part was removed. Doesn't make sense however it would be nice if it had a brake control. Oh yeah of course has tow package. Thanks for all your help...Dave

my chevy has 3.73 rear end ratio. my tranny has OD and i tow in third gear, not overdrive. third gear is 1:1 gear. 1 revolution in the front will get you 1 revolution out the back to the rear end. in overdrive the transmition will generate more heat in the trans fluid. i have found that towing in overdrive, the trans down shifts to third gear more frequently, good luck,jeff
