    I'm reading it anyway and am quite pleased that they're going to define SAE Tow Capacity standards. I think Ford is gonna be on the loosing end of this deal :laugh:

    Ford is screwed... I bet Toyota will really do well with these new standards. They seem to be the most conservative.

    Yup, ford and their lackluster 5.4 are going to hurt.....Ford guys always tout the tow figures, but the trucks (5.4L), don't have the power to move the load, regardless of the strength of the rest of truck.
