Check your tongue weight, balance is everything! I've towed mine a couple of times behind the Ranger and other than having to take the 2.3 to redline in each gear to get going you barely knew it was back there.

Correct I had to move the car back right over the dove hump. Tows the best in the position

Cool! Not only is the balance good for towing characteristics it extends the life of your rubber torsion axles if you have them plus good for the tires life too.

That's good to know since I own a 2011 ccF250 with the 6.2.

Love that truck.

Nick:

A set of air bags in the rear will do wonders for that truck.
I have had air bags on every pickup truck I have owned and it is amazing how the truck feels when you put 50 + lbs in those bags and level the truck out.

With the reduced weight (aluminum panels) it makes the truck feel really mushy when your passing. I'm only going to use the trailer about 6-8 times a year mostly local stuff. But I will look into those.

A weight distribution hitch makes a world of difference too even if you don't need it for the weight your hauling. They handle so much better with that in place.

I see.
On all of my trucks, air bags have taken the "mushy" feel out of it and also helped the front steer much better. It levels the truck and helps restore the correct steering geometry.
I don't think the weight of your truck is producing the mushy feel but rather the design of the suspension itself, but that's JMO.

As posted above, those weight distribution bars do wonders also.

In your case the bars might be a better choice.

I agree.
I have used them even with my one tons and it made a big difference.

My ol' 84 F350 CC single rear wheel had both air bags and wt.dist. bars and that thing drove nice.
