VIDEO- Loading 2011 F250 with 3465lbs of Marble


Wife and I decided to do some landscaping so we ended up making 3 trips to Lowes to pick up 3 pallets of Marble. This was the second trip. 63 Bags at 55lbs per bag. The truck's butt dropped about 2" and sat perfectly level when loaded with the weight. They ended up having to hand load the bed because I have a BedRug Bed Cover and they could not slide the pallet up without tearing it. I have Timbren SRS and Pro-Comp Dual Add-A-Leaf, Bedrug. I was very suprised how well the truck handled the weight. That is a lot of weight for any 3/4 ton truck. This is a good video showing how the 2011/2012/2013 F250 would handle that much.

take a sheet of plywood and cut it down for a short bed for doing stuff like this. my pickup bed is linex'd which sucks for loading salt and etc so i always have a sheet of plywood 4'x8'(long bed) on top so the lining doesnt get banged up from people that cant load a truck. even if you dont keep it in the truck, store it in the garage and grab it when needed. beautiful truck though

With the bedrug in there I don't know if you can take the tailgate off, but they could probably set the pallet all the way in there with it out of the way. I've done that several times (no bedrug though). Once the load is in the bed, put the TG back on and away you go!!!

The plywood suggestion is good too.

Thanks for the ideas. I still need 2 more pallets to complete the job. I really don't want to take the gate off the back because I have several clamps and wires that pass through and prefer to leave it on if possible. Probably smart to remove it though.

Setting the parking brake will take a lot of the abuse off the trans park lock.

Piece of ply wood to fit the length of the bed and parking brake on and you are set for the next two pallets.

Agree on the parking brake. I squirmed a little when I saw the truck move. Other than that. Impressive!

Ill argue that. Put a pallet of Sheetrock mud in my truck. 64 boxes at 55lbs a piece. Sat maybe an inch below level. Rode and drove like a dream. Stock suspension.
