What is the difference between "UTT CAMERA PRO TRLR BACKUP AST JACK" and "HIGH CAP TRLER TOW PCKG PTBA"?

MSRP shows $1000 more for the high cap package. I believe both are the ultimate trailer package, but I thought the Tremor by default has the better axles from the high cap package?

Thanks!

I did the upgrade to the High Capacity towing to get the 10,800 LB rating. Yes, physical axle ratings are the same regardless (e.g., nothing different between 250 vs. 350, for that matter). Its what you get on the B-pillar stickers for you ratings and payload. Many discussions on this elsewhere.
 
I think the Diesels get the "High Cap tow packages" and the 7.3 the regular packages. EDIT the base package is included in the diesel costs and the UUT is ~1700 more

I'm correcting my initial statement after going back and looking at my 2020 Monroney sticker. There was a charge for the High Capacity Trailer Tow package ($1,130) and a credit with the Tremor Package Discount with this selection (-$570). There was no charge for the 10,800Lb GVWR rating.

Below is the website description of the High Capacity Package by itself. I did the bump in the GVWR to get me to within 600Lbs of the F350 rating (since the axles, it turns out, are the same).

F250s with package will have 3” receiver also.
I can concur that my F250 came with a 3" receiver and the hitch is rated to 21,000 per the Sticker on it. However, when I asked my ordering manager about what the correct Tow Rating was, he referred me to the Ford RV and Towing Guide: https://www.fleet.ford.com/towing-guides/

There you find that both the F250 and F350 version of the Tremor is rated at 15,000LB for bumper (conventional) towing, as discussed at length in other threads (this was for 2020 & 2021).
 
I also got the UTT Camera Pro Trlr backup ast Jack. But was I also supposed to get the trailer-mounted camera?

Answering my own question. Looks unlikely. Mentions the center high mount at the back of the cab and rear view (backup) only.
