I also should see lots of wrecked 3/4 tons as the majority of them pulling a 5er are over payload as well, but I don't. Pretty much every farmer in my area- literally thousands of them- should have died in a fiery inferno from being overloaded, but they haven't.
Of course in texas you guys allow yourself to be sheltered from the rest of the world
Shoot first ask questions later!

Looks like you'd be up the same creek to me.

But, I do see their point. I regularly see overloaded 1/2 tons unable to stop and sliding through intersections and read about them careening off the road because they lost breaks….. Oh wait, no I don't.
Okay thanks, I get your point, I'm sure my F250 can pull my 9000 lb trailer safely. Wanted expert with experienced person to answer, thank you...

Can you tell if this is a half ton in this "accident"?

Ok guys I think this thread has run its course. 6 pages of everyone having their say on this is plenty for the OP to make his own informed decision.
