You can get a Lariat in the 7200 -8200 GVW. So say you have 7200 GVW Lariat and want more payload. Adding bags would give you the same rating per say as a 7650-7700 maxtow.

You can't do that with ram because they don't have a max/HD tow option. The max is the lowest reg cab 2wd 8' bed V6 version. The more you add the more you lose. Theirs no upside in Ram configurations.

Rams RAWR is maxed at 3900lbs. That's the only one listed.
Ford goes from IIRC 3750-4050-4800(HD)

Good to know about the Dodge. I would still contend that the major limiting factor is the suspension. Seen any Dodge 1500's with broken frames and axles lately? Me neither.
