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?

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
