It depends on body config and trim levels. You can get any of the big 3 with high or low payloads. You can't always use the charts. You need to actually look at the door stickers. I've seen both Ram and Ford 3/4 ton diesels with less than 2000lbs for payload.

A 2011 I am looking at shows 2065. If it is a 30+ fuel tank I hope that number excludes fuel. Possibly a 150lb driver?

My 2015 f150 has a sticker of 1631. 400 more is nice but maybe not the end all be all truck. I'm taking a big loss on this. Hmmm....

That F250 payload chart is for gassers, not diesels.

That sticker I posted above is from a diesel. The sales guy took it for me and txt it to me. The charts I posted which of course are not exact are crazy higher. They did shoe diesel there too.

Diesels are heavy, they take away from payload. Some people just go by axle ratings and call it good. It all depends on what you want to do. My GVWR is 9200 and my axles are rated for 11800. Good luck with the new truck, whatever it is.

My 2015 Ram 3500 6.7L 4x4 long bed with Aisin tranny and 3.73 axle DRW, ratings are 5680# pay load 32,300# GCWR, 14,000# GVWR, max trailer weight 23,500#.
when you get a truck it will depend on engine, axle ratio and DRW or SRW and tranny, 4x4 or not, long bed or short and so on.
Sounds like you need to do more research. Ram is the only manufacture that's SAE tow rating certified. All others estimate. If I went with my set up and 4.10 axle my GCWR would have been 37,500#.
So do more research and more truck is better than border line.

I'm not sorry... A year and 21K miles later, I still like the truck. I'm pretty sure if I'd bought the Ford, I'd still like the truck. Some say the Ford has more HP and Tq. The differences are so small as to make no difference... The magazines and other media are going to favor whichever manufacturer is spending the most advertizing dollars with them... so take all the reports with a grain of salt. Between these two, get what you like and can afford... I don't think you can really go wrong.
have to say x2.. My local ram dealers are bad news.. that factored into my decision as well.

When I got a F250 XLT, CC, long bed, diesel in February 2011 the Ram was almost $4,000 more and it had old technology when compared to the Ford and Chev/GMC.
The Chev/GMC was a lot higher then other two and the RAM is made in Mexico.
