I've been on the Ford website a couple times to build the F-150 that I'd be interested in but I can't seem to find any choice for payload or GVWR? Maybe I'm missing it? Anyone else notice this? I've checked the HD towing but I don't think that increases payload.

I just checked and was able to select it. I am not sure what configuration you are looking for, but I believe the HD package only comes with the long bed.

It's available with the longest wheelbase, so either 8' bed super cab or 6.5' bed crew cab.

More important, XL or XLT trim only.

You may already be aware of the problem some owners had with the F150HD 3000+ lb advertized payloads and adding all 3000 lb in the bed of the F150HD overload the trucks 4800 RAWR.

The 4800 RAWR is good for up to maybe 2400-2500 lbs in the bed depending on the trucks actual scaled axle weights.
Probably one reason Ford dropped the old 8200 GVWR numbers back to 7850 GVWR.

One F150 owner came up with a 6800 GVWR and small 3800 RAWR with max tow package...so choose the bigger GVWR packages with the bigger 4550-4800 RAWR numbers.
Good luck

It's also available with 8' bed and reg cab.

With those cab configs, I can get HD payload added in by selecting the 3.5L Ecoboost and 3.73 rear end. At the end of it, HD Payload is listed in the options along with LT275/65R18C tires.

The only F150HD's that have a base payload of 3,000 lbs are the regular cab trucks and according to Ford fleet have a rear base weight of a little under 1,900 lbs. That would give you about 2,900 lbs before going over the rear GAWR. The Subercab F150HD's have a base payload of around 2,700 and the crew cabs are around 2,600 lbs. However, even on the heaviest crew cab 4x4 configuration, you can add a little over 2,700 lbs to the rear before going over the GAWR which is more than its 2,600 lb payload rating. These are of course base ratings and will change with options.

At the scale with my current truck and trailer I'm @ 39XX with a RAWR of 4300lbs, so 4800lbs would be a nice cushion. There's zero chance of us getting a bigger TT. Next RV will be a decent size 5er and 3/4 or 1 ton. I'm a little disappointed that it has to be an 8ft box or CC. They sure don't give the CC's away.[emoticon] Either does the General.[emoticon] Thanks everyone for the heads up on the rear axle and configurations.

I bought the F150 max tow package last year. I have the 3.55 rear end
which has a combo weight of 11,600 pounds. with 3.73 gears it shows a combo weight of 12,500. I'm pulling a 30 trailer with a max weight of 8300 pounds. the truck handles this trailer without any issue. one thing, the gas mileage without the trailer is 22-23mpg with the trailer it drops to 12mpg. I thought this information might be helpful.
good luck

You can order in Lariat. I did. That's the top trim.
