You can add whatever you want to a truck and it won't increase the payload a bit. Factory payload is factory payload - the only way you can legally carry more weight is to remove some of the weight...

Why are people asking what the payload of a vehicle is when every vehicle has that very information inside the driver's door on a placard. Along with GVWR, tire specifications and other useful basic...

Love the Rambox concept but would not buy it. Simply can't afford the weight penalty of 120# on a truck with such a severely limited payload capacity. Sadly the same goes for the crew cab, the...

I think I've always had LT tires on my trucks so it's hard for me to compare the ride. But I am aware there are some P-rated tires that have a better weight carrying rating than LT tires of the same...

It appears the Heavy Duty Payload package is not available on the King Ranch (it is on lower-trim levels). But if (and I have to confirm this) the payload with just the Max. Tow is over 1800 lbs then...

I haven't studied the heavy duty models in any detail but I know the Ram 2500 has greatly increased their tow/haul capacities for 2013.

I will say that the Ram price advantage is not as great as...

Thanks for the correction. I also may have made an error when I described the maximum payload of the F-150 as 1560 lbs with the Max. Tow package. That number is apparently without the Max. Tow...

Well it might reach the 700's but that should still set a new record for most pathetic payload capacity for a full size truck.

2013 Ram 1500 vs. Ford F-150: A shopping comparison

These are the shopping points I used to compare the above two trucks as a Canadian customer looking for a higher end all-purpose light duty full size truck. It is unlikely your exact requirements...

At least they are being honest about it. For years after Ford released MyFordTouch they were still telling Canadians they eventually would/might receive Sync Services and Apps. Maybe they still are...

He means just that: the area on the front of whatever it is your towing. A trailer 8' high by 7' wide has a frontal area of 56 sq. ft. more or less.

So what does the door placard say is the...

Umm the payload of the truck (GVWR minus weight of the truck as equipped from the factory). It's on the darn placard on the driver's side door. Given that it is a Laramie Longhorn, it's likely...

Your thinking is very similar to mine. But I've made my decision now - I just can not reconcile those Ram payload figures. So I really have no choice but to look at the F-150, possibly a King Ranch...

I don't know why Canadians are getting screwed on heavy trucks but I can assure you we are. Maybe that will change in time with additional incentives. Chrysler significantly increased their HD towing...

Precisely.

There's actually "only" about $16.5K difference between similarly equipped Laramie 4x4 1500 and 2500 in Canada though it is hard to make a direct comparison because the 2500 is not...

Yes the ZF transmission apparently weighs 30 lbs less than the old transmission which is why it adds 30 lbs to the payload capacity. There is a very useful .pdf document - that I don't have at the...

In the jaded eyes of the brand-loyal it was a perfectly fair test because both Ford and Ram were loaded with 95% of their GCVR capacity. I expect future Ram victories in all sorts of similar...

Sure didn't take long (in Canada at least) for Ram rebates on the new 2013 1500 model. They pretty much have no choice given the inflated MSRP and strong competition from Ford and GM. I'll be waiting...

And the Fords were pulling a 9000# trailer and the Rams were pulling a 5500# trailer (or was it 6500#?). Same % of GCVR. Still a truly sad comparison test in my mind.
