Yeah, maybe a 1980 2500 with a 305 in it, lol. Otherwise, any newer truck would easily pull either of those boats faster than it would be safe to go.

Having said that, any of todays modern drivetrains with 8-10 spd transmissions should be able to tow an 1850 Reatta and not even know it's back there.
Don't overthink it.

|Cornholio||ANY half ton pickup should pull a boat with no problem, let alone a 2500. Even if the boat is 5500 pounds, that is way under the tow rating. I can't even tell my boat is behind the truck.|

I'm shocked that pretty much any walleye boat would tow poorly behind any 250/2500. That is WAY below its towing capacity.
I'd also assume that either boat you mention would tow very well behind a modern F150.

Towing a Lund Pro V 2075 vs Ranger Reata 1850
I’m trying to determine what the Ranger Reata 1850 feels as far as towing behind a Ford F-150. Recently, I’ve experienced towing my friends Lund Pro V 2025 behind a Silverado 2500. I have only one thing to say. It’s awful. It’s a heavy boat with a 300 HP merc and kicker. I’m getting older and it’s too much for me. Looking for comparability since I’m considering a Ranger Reata. Also, how does the Ranger Reata toe versus the Lund Pro V 1800 or 1875? All input appreciated.
