99 F-250?

I have load range D
Cooper ST's on the truck now.
I believe the stock leafs are still in the back with no helpers.

How much can I safely haul in the bed without breaking leaf springs, or blowin a tire and being too hard on the truck?

I don't have far to go and I would like to haul a 3,800 lb. retaining block.
Would you attempt this?

thanks for any info,.

ONE 3800 lb block?

Get a car hauler and haul it that way.

3800 lbs in the bed of a 250 will most certainly damage everything....

If I were to guess though.... I think the rear suspension would be all the way to it's stops, the tires (load D... really??? )would be sitting on their rims, and the front end would be sitting so high you wouldnt be able to steer

I'd rather use "E" tires for a load that heavy. But more importantly, is it a Super Duty or standard? And does it have a 6 or 8 foot box? Those make a difference too. With a longbed SD and E tires, I'd prolly move something that heavy if it's a short run, but not more than 15-20 miles on good roads. And keep the speed down due to lack of front traction. Further and I'd be using my trailer for sure.
