2009 f450 tow limit increase

I was looking at the 2009 towing specs on the F450 and noticed that they increases the GCVW from 29000lbs to 33000lbs with 4:30 gears. It used to take 4:88s to pull 33k and the power was cut back. Now the 4:30 are rated for that wt. Any changes to the trk? Did they cut the engine power back like on the 4:88 model in 2008?

I thought all F450s were derated?

Just the 4.88. I was so pissed when I popped the hood and read 325hp and 600lbs/ft. Unless you always drive uphill with a load 4.88 is overkill. I wish I would have shopped instead of walking in and buying it unseen. But no truck on the road tows as well as a 08+450. The truck begs to be overloaded

09 F250 SC 4x2, well dressed, [email protected], 813hp and 1725.9ft/lbs.
