Default

you figure your payload weight by

Payload
The sum resulting from subtraction of the curb weight from
the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR).

1997 Dodge Ram 1500 2 wheel drive 4X4 weigh more, thus can haul less
Weights: gross vehicle weight rating (kg) 2,903 (6400 lbs), curb weight (kg) 1,833 (4041 lbs), gross trailer weight braked (kg) 1,633, front axle weight (kg) 1,656, (3651 lbs) rear axle weight (kg) 1,769 (3900 lbs) and max legal load (kg) 1,075 ( 2370 lbs)

My math may be wrong & the website that i got most of the info from may be incorrect

1000 lbs is 1/2 ton
1500 lbs is 3/4 ton
2000 lbs is 1 ton
