You did get a few guesses huh....I'll admit...mines the correct answer
A light duty truck is officially classified as a truck weighing 14000lbs or less. In order to claim the F450 as a light duty truck, given its increased curb weight over the F350, they had to reduce the published payload capacity and claim an overall GVW of 14k to keep it there. Otherwise it would have been categorized as a medium duty truck and would require a CDL to drive.
