How do I know if an 09 and up F150 has the max payload package or not?
I know how to tell at a glance the older models
97-99 the badge says F250 and there are seven lugs
2000-2004 classic the badge says F150 but has seven lugs and says 7700 on the tailgate
2004-2008 all long bed super cabs had the payload package and has 7 lugs
I don't know how to tell about the newer trucks.
Is there a badge that say maxpayload or do I just count the lugs again? 7 lugs?
My next truck will be a used F150 with a payload package.

X2 the door frame tire sticker should say 8200 lbs max weight.
It can be a standard cab long bed that is the style that SkipnChar had and he was very happy with his.
When I bought our F150 back in 2005 I was forced into the Heavy Payload option because I wanted a long bed extended cab. I have learned to love it! It adds a 1000 lbs to the to the payload but the trucks ride is not as harsh as a F250.
My friends diesel F250 Scab short bed payload is only 90 lbs more than mine but his ride will knock your teeth loose.
I pull a heavy TT approx 8200lbs, I am within all my weight limits and the truck handles the trailer well,(not smooshy). I will admit it is not a bad puller in the ___flatlands___ of Indiana, but we have made 3 trips to Florida over the Smoky Mtns and a couple trips over the Appalachian mtns in PA & NY.
The Heavy Payload Package is a good option, I have been very happy with it, I just wish I had the 7 lug aluminum wheel option back in 2005, painted steel wheels only back then.
