so my neighbor wants my opinion on if he is overloaded

Shockingly not on the bump stops. Probably had half inch of suspension travel.

I would say yes. My F150 SCrew with the max tow package doesn't squat that much when I put my trailer on. It has roughly a 950# tongue weight. If he has a 7200# GVW he probably only has 1000-1200# of payload left. I am guessing he has 1500-2000# in that truck. He must have a load of stone???

Looks like your typical Ford. Probably hauling some spare parts for the next breakdown...

Just don't check my sig.

pea gravel. He is getting rid of the prior owner's landscaping as the pea gravel tends to find its' way into the house and end up in the washing machine. He backed into the yard (incline) and a couple buddies started shoveling. I would estimate the bed is about 2/3 full.

He was planning to drive it to work like that today and then go unload tonight after work.

This is the first trip, 1-2 more planned.

Every year I had my F150 Crew, I went and got sand to add to my parents beach. My scale record was 1.67 tons of sand.

Overloaded? Nah, I still had an inch left before the bed was sitting on the rear axle after all!

But isn't this one reason you buy a pickup - to haul those various things you need to haul from time to time.

To me he is simply using his truck for the purpose it is built.

Is he over loaded - not IMO, especially if he doesn't do it on a daily basis.
