Hauling question

So Im somewhat new to the 6.4 ive had my 08 f250 for about 4 months now. I do some landscaping on the side and I used to have a 96 psd and hauled two yards of dirt and broke a couple springs. Im just wondering how much you all put in your bed. I mean a yard of dirts about a ton could it take two of them safely?

You want to put 4000lbs of dirt in the bed of your truck?

I wouldn't do it

I'd rent a dump trailer.

That is a crazy amount of weight to have in the bed, especially a 250. I agree, use a dump trailer.

Except for the shovel work involved with getting the dirt out, 2 tons is nothing for a 250. I work in the aggregates industry and we have people in half tons come in and get 1 1/2 tons or more with no problems. Now granted they are going short distances. But the truck (250) will carry that weight no sweat.
