haha yes sir

as previously stated these trucks (although not legally) can handle lots of weight. Last time i got hay i set a new personal record for my truck of 22,300 pounds total weight with truck and trailer. We also had the cummins dodge with us with another trailer which weighed out to about 21,000 pounds. My truck pulled the weight alot better than the dodge!

I believe it, that's why nothing but E load range tires on these trucks. How far did you go with that in the bed?

legally, any of these trucks can haul 26,000# minus curb weight when you're talking about truck & trailer with a class C license... they can actually do it too...

as far as cargo in the bed... you might not mind a ticket for being overweight, but I'm going to at least try to talk you out of exceeding your GVWR... It is very true that a 5.4L F250 can legally haul more without a trailer than a PSD F250... but you knew that when you bought it...

I do this every time I haul hay. 7,800 pound truck, 3,500 pound trailer, 13,000 pounds of hay=24,300 pounds. A good trailer, with good brakes, loaded evenly handles the loads just fine. My truck is licensed for 26,000 gvw and as long as I keep the axle weights in check on the truck there is no problem from the DOT with hauling that much.

What pleased me the most was I average between 11.5 and 12.2 mpg when hauling that much.

That's interesting putting that much rock in the bed and have it all fit. What is your set up or did you exceed your tire ratings, your axle ratings and your GVWR?

I don't know... I'm not worried about the suspension or tires nearly as much as I would be about the brakes... getting that much moving is one thing, stopping it in a hurry is very different.

avoiding the 'hurry' part is best advice.

exactly haha when you work a farm you get used to towing or driving things that most people wouldn't even attempt. Listen to the song international harvestor haha chug a lug a luggin' 5 miles an hour. its all about taking it slow and knowing what may be ahead of you and speeding up from behind you.
