Maximum Payload F350

I have a 2012 F350 4x4 CC SRW 6.7 with a short bed. It came with the optional 11,300 GVWR Package, along with Snow Plow Package, Trailer Tow, Etc....


I have checked the information on my documentation, plus this site:


2012 Ford Super Duty - Specs, Towing Capacity, Payload Ratings


It is my understanding that the published payload is just over 4,400 pounds. Now I understand that when I load my truck with stuff and passengers, then hook up to my fifth wheel I could actually be decreasing my payload, but isn't published payload for this exact truck just over 4,400?

Published payload means nothing. Pretty sure its a standard cab stripped down, assuming a 150lb operator. Not real life. Actual payload is the weight of the truck subtracted from the GVWR. Anything added to that reduces the amount of leftover payload you can use.

I've never weighed my truck, but always assumed it was around 8K lbs. Right there that makes the payload 3300. Even if off a little, would be pretty hard to make up a 1.1K difference.

look on the sticker between the front & rear doors on the drivers side.. it has the capacity listed.

but the real number is the GVWR - actual weight..

my F250 weighed 8300 lbs, with a GVWR of 10,000, leaving 1700 lbs for documented capacity

I've seen lots of folks post here the weight of their F350 SRW at 8400-8600 lbs.. 11300-8400 = 2900 capacity

I agree with everything you are saying. But I was asking about PUBLISHED PAYLOAD SPECS for my truck according to Ford, not what the actual payload is when I am loaded and hooking up to my fiver.


I weigh regularly and use the following cheat-cheat that puts me at 23% pin.


Actual Weights - Fifth Wheel Weights from CAT Scales - Towing Planner

EVERYTHING cuts into payload. Its usually calculated as a 1/4 tank of fuel and 150lb driver and nothing else. The only way to determine is run it over a set of scales and see what you weigh compared to GVWR.

check the payload value on the sticker on your truck.

what we don't know is payload given what conditions...(cause those aren't documented)..

if it says 4400, doesn't matter.. the actuals are the truth.

11300-4400 means somebody thinks some version of the truck weighs just 6900.. and I bet gas engine probably does.. course that is useless to us diesel engine folks

i think that chart is clearly showing that under some circumstances,it's possible for your trucks curb weight to be 6,860 lbs.
if you cross the scales and you see your truck weighs exactly 6,860 lbs then this means with your GVWR of 11,300 lbs then you would then have a legal payload capacity of 4,440 lbs.

i think this is the answer you want to hear.will you actually find your truck ever weighing in at a 6,860 lbs empty? that's on you to discover.with the optional diesel engine,4wd and plow package for starters.....i wouldn't hold your breath.
find yourself a certified scale,fill up with fuel and your normal tools,dog,cat,wife,kids etc and then you would know what your payload is.

Maybe it would help if you told us why the published payload specs are important to you. It appears you know that the GVWR is 11,300, and you know that your truck weighs more than 6,860. Just dont know what you are actually after in your line of questioning.

My truck weighed by itself at the cat scale loaded (2 passengers, Reese slider hitch, in-bed tool box, full 26 gal fuel plus 15 gal extra in can in tool box, front bumper bike rack with two bikes, plus Rock Tamers) = 8,380.


I have weighed my truck by itself and I have weighed my combination, actually more than once. My pin weight percentage is 23.6%. I understand all that believe me. I am maxed out and that is why I visited the scales and constantly monitor my weight distribution.


I just had someone swear up and down that my Published Payload Specs for my truck had to be way under 4,000, not my actual payload.

what does the sticker on the door post say? on my dually it says 4732
13300-4732 = 8568.. very close to the 8700 it weighed with fuel on board, no driver

Hi Guys

2011 F-350 SRW....CC...LB
Full Fuel & Driver (Me) = 8020 lbs (scale measured)

Add: 5th wheel hitch...Wife & Grandkid....= 8470 lbs

Now the Fun: Pin weight (scale measured) = 4300 lbs

8470 + 4300 = 12,770 Total Gross weight of truck with 5th wheel hitched up.

GVWR = 11,500
What it really was (Scale) = 12,770

I was 1,270 lbs OVER weight...........

Hence.......Sold 2011 F-350 SRW..........Ordered (waiting delivery) 2015 F-350 DRW........GVWR = 14,000 lbs

Here is a link to a Ford supplied towing capacity document.

I dont see a 11,300 GVWR option, but If I am reading it correctly, it says that your payload info is as follows:


I cut/paste, sorry for the formatting, but looks like with a 6.7L, 2839, or 3,059 depending on size of wheels.


<table dir="LTR" border="1" cellSpacing="0" cellPadding="7" width="219"><tbody><tr><td height="7" vAlign="BOTTOM" width="19%">Model

Your GVWR is 11,300lbs and the truck weighs 8380lbs, then simple math says you available capacity is 2920lbs. What is the pin weight?
