It's all about the payload capacity and a 1/2 ton. 1930 lbs is the top for the supercrew with the regular wheelbase. That is my future goal. The new ones may be better as they shed the weight.

Pretty sure it was advertised as above 3000lbs - it was an ad right here on this forum. I remember it because it was surprising. If it comes up again I'll make sure to capture a screen shot.

Edit: Just checked at the Ford website. 2330 for a 4x4 super crew cab, 3100lbs for the regular cab 145 ecoboost.

since the new aluminum body weighs 750 lbs less that should translate into that much extra payload if everything else remains the same. And my 2011 ecoboost supercab with 8 foot box has a 2740lb payload so 3400lb could be right.

Thank you aage, I have the wd, and use a sway bar on one side .
It's a bit lacking in power, but gets me there.
