My ‘17 F250 SuperCrew Lariat sticker says 3188 lbs.
I was pretty impressed with that after the 1800ish of the 1500 Silverado.

Satisfied with our F150

2015 F150 Lariat Crew w/max tow, 3.5 EB and 6.5 bed. Payload sticker 1800. Just fine for our 2005 Safari 25C and gear. Looked at 2014 models but 2015 aluminum body offered 300 lbs greater payload.

Glad to read this thread and realize significance of load capacity. We're alright, weights have worked out but I hadn't thought about challenge of goofy ratings. Our truck's also a 2006 gasser, a 2500HD. It's performed very HD for over 200,000 miles and still rocks our boat.

But . . . we do look around when we're at rallies and we've found our "next" truck. The Ram EcoDiesel is legal again. Three of our friends are towing 25' Airstreams, a Safari, a Classic, and an International, with theirs. They all love their truck. I think I would too but I can't love but one truck at at time.

We all have the same low payload that you have with or without the snowplow package. I don't think you can single that out. I don't have that package and my payload is 2150.

The OP said his truck has a payload of 3000 lbs. How in the world is that considered a low payload? The snow plow prep and the heavier springs on the front must account for something. I wonder how this affects the amount of weight that should be transferred to the front axle?

"low" is a relative term. I am comparing the actual payload with data like this from the internet.

I'll bet his truck, with 3000lbs of payload is not a Lariat, King Ranch, or Platinum!

Hi

Internet numbers are always going to fake you out. The number they come up with is (inevitably) the number with max springs and zero options. In this day and age they *should* be able to write a piece of software to address that .... nobody does.

The break between the F-250 and F-350 is an marketing decision. The trucks are identical. The pricing is identical. At some magic point in the progression of options, they put a different badge on it. That locks out some nutty option combo's and likely makes things a bit easier to build.

The idea that the "truck number" has any bearing on how much you can toss in the bed before it breaks ... that's been nonsense for a *very* long time. If you have a certain amount of "stuff" you need to haul, you check the sticker. Finding a dealer or a piece of paper that can predict what's on the sticker .... good luck.

My F250 Platinum has a 2952 lb sticker on it. If I had gone with a F350 the price would have changed by a few hundred dollars and the sticker might have gone up by a few hundred pounds. The options on the truck, the look of it, the ride, and the handling would not have changed. If you go with a diesel, take off 500 or 600 lb from that number.

Bob

I think the internet numbers often quoted are for regular cab, gas engine, max tow package, xl trim.

These are the work trucks, not the type people often buy on these forums.

Hi

You can find a lot of different tables on the internet. Some get into cab types and trim levels. They still leave out a lot of stuff when they come up with this or that number. People here love to go 4x4, the tables are 4x2. People love diesel engines, the tables are for the small gas engine .... You can be off by 800 or 1200 pounds in some cases.

Bob

I think it is worse than that. If, for example, you go into Ford's web site they will provide a very detailed matrix of payload and towing capacity by engine type and trim. All I can say is good luck finding one anywhere near what they post on that matrix.

Exactly. Why the build to order sites for the manufacture don’t list vehicle weight and available payload as you go through the selections is just plain laziness. Unfortunately, most buyers just don’t care.
