the truck's GVWR and axle ratings is based on the weakest of the tires, brakes, hubs, axles, springs, frame, and suspension links.
just saw a bit where some guy thought he could beef up his F150 by using the optional heavier duty springs, someone pointed to a ford document showing that depending on the factory load rating, there might be 3 different steel thicknesses in the frame....
they engineer these things to quite tight specification tolerances.

|MightyMouse75||There is no legal way to increase GCWR. The only legal option is to reduce truck weight in order to increase payload. While the payload sticker is static, its the gcwr that you must adhear to. You should either step up to a bigger truck, or get a bunper pull. Sorry..|

Is Increasing payload rating possible?
I'm trying to decide on a fifth-wheel toy hauler/camper. I find plenty of options that are well within the current max tow rating(16900lbs) of my truck but in many instances, the pin weight puts it beyond the spec for my truck.
Is there realistically any way to bump the in-bed payload(pin weight capacity) of my F250 legally? ...and feasibly?
I'm aware that the truck would have no problem exceeding some of these limits functionally w/air bags etc... but I don't want to get into hot water with the law if there were some kind of accident.
If it comes to it, I can trade into a F350 or something but I like my current truck.
Here is the door-jam sticker...and the truck does have the 10k GVWR option(and the 6.7 obviously).
