Let me know your capacity.. It's on the door jam sticker..Was Shocked to know how much lower it was compared to the gassers.
Mine is 1215 lbs. but that is a little confusing because my GVWR is 7050 lbs.
1084#s..That what I'm been saying..
So my Short bed 4x4 weight on the CAT scales was 5960#sI had similar concerns and questions when I saw my Tire and Loading Information sticker. The Ford marketing is very well done on their part. For instance my truck (3.0 Diesel, 4x2, 145”wheelbase ,Supercab) can tow or pull 11,400 lbs. However according to my Tire and Loading Information sticker my cargo carrying capacity is only 1697 lbs. Which seems to be more than most, probably because I have a supercab and only 2 wheel drive which lightens my truck a bit. But even then, if you’re towing a trailer with a 900 lbs hitch weight you don’t have much room left for friends and cargo. You would think an aluminum body truck would gain you a lot of cargo carrying capacity but I think you lose a lot of that advantage because the diesel engine is so heavy.
Doing the math I was confused with the cargo carrying capacity of only 1697 lbs but the truck GVWR of 7050 lbs. This didn’t add up. So I wrote this letter to Ford and asked:
My Dealer told me the shipping weight of my truck was 4790 lbs. He said this is with maybe 2 gallons of fuel in the tank.
So for the curb weight of the vehicle I added 24 more gallons of diesel for a total of 168 lbs. This would make the Curb Weight of the vehicle 4958 lbs.
My door jamb sticker (below) says the vehicle GVWR is 7050 lbs.
This would leave me with a Cargo Capacity of 2092 lbs
My question is, why does the Tire and Loading Information sticker on the door jamb say: “The combined weight of the occupants and cargo should never exceed 1697 lbs”
Ford sent me back the attached letter with their explanation. I hope this helps anyone wondering. I think we have a bit more wiggle room for towing.
