Totally get the rated payload concern


Wait, who are you and what have you done with Grit dog?

You're usually on the front lines of, "People who pay attention to ratings are namby-pamby, panty-waisted, pansy hippies that should not be allowed to own a truck."


I’ve never said that….lol!
And I generally don’t yell at the person asking the question. It’s the (you mentioned above) folks who tell the person asking the question that they can’t haul more than a load of mulch in a 1 ton truck!
Hahaha
Guy could be and sounds like he’s moving to MT every time he loads up. But he’s still good for 6k in the bed.

I paraphrased. My wording more accurately describes the sentiment while your actual wording may have been slightly more... diplomatic.

I am operating a 2016 F350 Dually 4x4. The as built weight capacity rating is 7450. The Eagle Cap 1165 I have is showing an as built dry weight of 4800.
Loaded with a half tank of water I weighed 60 pounds under GVWR.
The upgrades include Air Lift 7500 airbags, Stable Loads, Rancho 9000.
These upgrades don’t change the load capacity for legal purposes, but do offer a more stable/ comfortable ride.
I pull a boat routinely and will flat pull a small SUV when that time comes.
The giant worry to be considered is liability if you cause a catastrophic accident.
Otherwise I am very comfortable with my setup.
Respectfully,
Kent
