I didn't see 3k lbs on the payload package selector tab on the link below:

2012 Ford Super Duty | View Payload Specifications | Ford.com

250 or 350?
2wd or 4wd?
What GVWR is your truck registered at?

All in all though, the door sticker is ultimately what you should go by.

I can't see how the numbers on the site are accurate because how much you can put in the truck will be impacted by the GVWR which in turn will be impacted by the motor/options you have, etc. My truck (GVWR 11,200) on the site you provided lists a payload of 4,050lbs while the recommended payload that Ford stuck on my door is 3,423lbs. My rear axle weight rating is 7,000, the tires are 3,640 each.

I'm with you though, the numbers just don't add up...

The tire and load sticker is the real deal

Same here. Numbers don't jive. When in doubt never go over your rated tire capacity.

The payload listed on a web site is usually just approximate based on the style of truck, while the payload sticker is specific to that truck including all options as built, and likely includes the weight of a 150 pound occupant in each of its seats. I don't know if your truck has seating for 5 or 6, but it sounds pretty close.

My 1999 F350 CC weights 6800 pounds, and has a GVWR of 9700, for a total payload of 2900 pounds. If I take away 900 pounds for 6 passengers, I have 2000 pounds left, which is what the camper package loading data certification says it can carry.
