I have nothing against 1/2 ton TVs. I prefer 3/4 1 tons. I have never towed with a 1/2 so I guess I should just read and keep quiet on that subject. I had a 06' f-250 5.4 gasser that would sound like a screaming nightmare pulling a TT up a couple hills out side of Mammoth Ca. That's when I went to a diesel. Like you a much better towing experience.

Another thing to keep in miND when towing with a 1/2 ton is frontal area limits. F150 has 60sqft limit in their towing guide.

My 2005 2500 sticker says 1,6xx# on the little sticker. I have some F150's at work with 2,3xx# stickers. So........ Where's the land?

I have never seen one on 3/4 ton at 1600 payload. I had Chevy 2500HD Diesel LTZ loaded to the gills and still had 2475. You can check the F150 website there are a lot F150 with higher payload than my 2500HD but on the lots I have not seen a F150 over about 2000.

What additional equipment do you think was installed at your 2500 that added 875 lbs to the weight of the truck over my loaded LTZ? What was the trucks GVWR?

2005 Dodge Ram 2500 with Cummins had 9,000lb GVWR. A base model QC 4x4 SB could tip the scales at over 7,000. A few options and a payload under 1700 isn't far fetched.

OK, that make sense with trucks GVWR of 9,000. If my 2500hd i use to own had with 2475 CC would only have 1475 CC with GVWR of 9,000.
