And we're talking XLT- pretty much all Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum models will be lower. Ram's are even worse. Check out the payload on a 1500 Mega Cab. Many of those - and some of the fully loaded GM and Ford versions- have less than 1K in CCC. Now you're talking about being overloaded with only 4 big guys. I've even seen 3/4 tons that have a CCC of only around 1500lbs. That's before the bigger wheels and tires and huge steel front and rear bumpers. I'd venture that a lot of the heavily modded 3/4 ton trucks are close to GVWR just sitting there, especially if they've got an auxiliary fuel tank in the bed full of diesel like I see all the time around here.
Here are the specs.
Don't know where you are getting your info.
Scroll down to page 33.
The LOWEST rating on a supercrew is 1510. (enough for 6 250 lb guys- I would love to see a picture of that)
That is a V6 (non turbo) 4x4 short bed. 4x4 will add about 400-800 lbs to a rig.
Most of them are much higher.
My 04 XLT 4x4 V8 was rated at 3000 lbs. And I usually carried about 2k plus 400 hitch.
