Question Ford 8.8 load capacity

Can anybody tell me where to find weight ratings for this r.e? Or, do you have any guesses how heavy I can go before it folds in half?

At least the Chow lets you know it is unstable, she just left cheated and called back crying with her appologies.

Thanks for the info. I'll try to avoid wrecking it. I noticed you've swapped a Dana 60 into your f150. Did it take many modifications? I've got a couple around, just didn't plan on putting one in my wood hauler, but maybe it's a better idea. Any tips?

No just the spring perches and the U-joints are larger so I went with a 74 NP435, a 2 piece HD drive shaft outa a 75 F350.That was about it.It was HEAVY I had Me, MY step dad, and my mom helping me roll the sucker underneath.I left the tires on-it rolled alot easier
Later
