Thats actuallly kind of funny because in order to keep this truck in the light duty catigory it needed to have a gvwr of 14k or less. Because this truck has a cwr greater than the F350, Ford had to claim that the payload capacity was slightly less...make sense? Maximum payload is shown at 4779lbs, but Ford claims its really closer to 7200lbs. Towing is rated at 31,200lbs.

Congratulations, indeed. (And my 2015 F-350 doesn't fit in mine, either.

Drw definitely give you a more planted feel. You do have to pay far more attention when turning and parking, but its all reliative. Great trucks though, whichever you decide on,

IronCobra That's a really nice truck. You are right about the difference in the old to newer trucks. I'm a Ram man myself. I went from a 98.5 3500 DRW quad cab long bed 5.9 24 valve diesel to a 2014 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty DRW Mega Cab Short Bed 6.7 L Cummins Aisin. the difference in the two trucks is like night and day I do love the new truck. I notice you live in Corpus Christi, Texas I will be down there next month to see my son. Would nice to meet you face to face. Have you lived there long?
