Most dont agree with me and the loads I carry but I didnt buy my truck to look pretty (though she really does!!!). She is a daily driver and a hard worker that never balks at working overtime. I have a F250 and have hauled 4500 in the bed and towed a 10,000 trailer for 1200 miles multiple times a year. I hit the scales (by my choice) without trailer at 11,640lbs (have picture to prove it).

My truck is always overloaded, constantly hauling and towing and never let me down beyond the typical powerstroke problems. These trucks are built over-tough and designed to work harder then you think. You wont even feel the 2500 in the bed! Especially if you have the factory overload springs. She has 188,700 miles and going strong. Oh - she is a first run '03 6.0!

I had a couple pallets of shingles in mine with a trailer with another one on the back. The shingles weighed over 2k a pallet. It definitely made it squat, but it didn't hurt anything. 2500 with that tiny tow load you will barely even feel.

I hope this is a joke about your truck being overloaded with only 2500 lb. in the bed and pulling a 2800 lb. boat.
My fifth wheel has a tongue WT of 3200 lb and the trailer is right at 17000 lb and 12.5 tall.
The little 6.0 walks on down the road with this load.
Just make sure that you have at least 70 Lbs of air in the back tires.
