My F-350 dually 4X4 rated cargo in the bed is 5,500 lbs. The most I've ever had on it was 5,300. Only thing I noticed was that it rode as smooth as a Lincoln Town Car lol.
I use it a lot when hauling maple sap in a 325-gallon caged tote. When full, not counting the weight of the tote, there's roughly 2,760 lbs., nothing at all for my truck. But I know plenty of guys hauling sap in 275-gallon totes (if full, not counting tote weight around 2,335 lbs.) with half-ton Fords, Chebbies and Male Sheep I mean Rams and they squat something terrible. MANY complain of broken axles, broken springs, cracked frames - sure, some of that has to do with age, but it all boils down to STOOPIT. And yes, there are accidents and tickets waiting to happen.
I need more than 200 characters for my "signature." I'd love to see that changed to 250!
