Yup. Mine has almost 3,000 lb payload on my sticker...
... but I am comfortable exceeding that.
Available Payload = GVWR - current weight.
Since F250's are paper handicapped at 10,000 GVWR the payload they can safely handle is more than the sticker.
The difference between a modern F250 and a F350 SRW is the extra 2 inches of block under the rear springs... and nothing else.
This tells me: I can safely use the F350 SRW numbers... as long as I don't bottom out my rear springs, since I have two inches less of travel.
Many folks disagree, however I don't lose sleep over it.
