How much weight in bed?

I see people ask how much weight they can haul in their bed. Here's 2400 lbs of block, right on the very end of the bed at that. It squatted pretty good but that's about it. I was nervous at first but everything's fine

Going and stopping wasn't any problem at all. I was just worried about bending the bed supports with all that weight in such a small area

Nice, Ive hauled 2k or more in my bed a whole lot this summer, from pallets of tile to broken concrete or a full bed of dirt.


They can definitley take plenty except for when the retarded fork lift operator drops the pallet on the bed fast and blows out your valve stems

yeah this guy dropped it pretty fast and when I got home I noticed the back looked like it was low still and sure enough both valve stems split and were leaking air
