Weight in Bed????

I am laid off so I have been doing a lot of side jobs. Now my wife is making do stuff to my hose. Done with the bathroom so now its stone for the front patio. I need enough stone to cover almost 300 sq foot. So two pallets about 3000 lbs each. Total of 6k. I really really dont want to make two trips because I want to just load the truck and start. I want to unload piece by piece on the job.

6000 in the bed........will these things handle it or am I in spring issue territory? I figure when I get home, I could jack up a little bit on my hitch to take some load off of the springs.

I dont want to break a spring or crush bed mounts.

Thoughts?

6000 is too much for a F350 SRW

How much does your truck weigh?

Subtract that weight from the GVW on the door sticker, top right.
That is what you can legally haul in the bed.

My truck weighs 7950,full fuel.

One pallet will put you over I would bet.

Don forget about the weight rating of the tires.

I've had over 5000lbs in the bed on more than one occasion, but I wont recommend it

I've done 5k once and won't do it again. 6k is dually territory and even then the springs won't like it.
