payload capacity

Does anyone out there know the payload capacity for a 95 F-250 PSD extra cab long bed, not sure of the gear ratio either. Thanks: Mike

GVW I think is 8800, it'l be in the drivers door jamb. I've had over 2 tons of gravel in my short box easily. Just depends on your judgement as to what you feel you can safely haul.

Thanks over10rd, but how do I get the payload capacity. I did check and the GVWR is 8800, do I take that number and minus the weight of the vehicle to get the payload capacity? If thats true then my payload capacity would be about 2300 lbs. 8800 minus 6500 (the weight of my vehicle) which is barely more than a ton. Also I'm not positive of my vehicle weight does it show on the door pillar? Any more input would be very much appreciated.

Thanks; Mike

The F-250 is classified as a 3/4 Ton Truck But the calculation you have are
correct. Which is a safe load limit for payload in the bed. The towing load is
alot higher, since the total actual weight is not on the truck. I woud feel safe
with good load range tires hauling 2300- 2600 payload. But tire condition and air pressure is very important!!

Thanks gbear, so I was right about 2300 lbs. That doesn't seem like a lot of payload capacity. I just hauled about 5500 lbs of gravel so I hope I didn't hurt anything on my truck, what do you think. Mike

I don't think you hurt anything. I hauled alot more than 2300 lbs on mine. It just a matter of safety. I would not want to tell someone sonething that isn't
safe. I have had mine down on the snubbers with a load for a short distance.
But I have really good tires, and had them inflated to 80 psi which I generally run them at 60 psi for a better ride when undoaded. I think my truck is alot like yours (95, 7.3, 8' bed, e4od automatic, I love this truck)
