- Truck Year
We will be moving soon so I started to tare down my wood shop in the basement. I took a piece of 3/4 mdf and laid it in the bottom of the bed. Then filled'er up! I know I was well over the max payload. I bet you I had close to 1500lb in the bed. Then I connected a 6x10 flat trailer and loaded another 1500 maybe 2000lb to that.
The ass squatted a bit but nothing drastic. I was amazed at how well the truck drove! The trip was about 22 miles one way. Mostly highway. The only limit I could detect was my nervous right foot. I don't know how they calculate payload ratings but I think this truck is seriously underrated!
The bad news was how bad the bed was scratched. I missed a few screws and they of course found there way right to the metal.
My truck goes in Tuesday to have a spray in bed liner installed then the whole bed will be carpeted. I'm also going to build a cap and order on Tuesday as well.
