Also, how does the Ranger Reata toe versus the Lund Pro V 1800 or 1875? All input appreciated.
I don't know about the Silverado but I tow a 202GL with a 150 King Ranch. I did make sure to get the towing package rated for 10K and it tows just fine. Sometimes I can find myself on the highway over 70MPH and not know it is there until I get some sway from a faster moving semi passing me. I towed it with an escalade and did not like it due to the shorter wheelbase and air ride. I also towed a 2025 with the Escalade and I hated it. I think the Silverado is on the same frame as the escalade. I could not be more pleased with the Ford, almost purchased a 250 worried about it but glad I did not.

Don't overthink it.

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.

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.

RMBin303 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.

Knutson21 I tow my 1850 Reata on Dual Axel trailer. It tows like a dream
