I have a 2007 crew (maxi) cab 4.7 v8, not sure how to know my "bed" length----maybe I can't find what I need in PDFs is because I am 70 yrs old & don't understand all this technology we have today, tried phone, no luck

This is what I come up with. According to the specs, you have the 3.21 rear axle ratio, really not very good for towing. In other places, they claim the max tow rating is 3850 lbs..... with a manual trans...... Not sure how having an auto would affect that.
