Figure the most weight you will tow with the truck and check the manufacturers specs for tailer towing and load carrying capacity. Buy accordingly. If you are going to be at the maximum most of the time you would probably be better served buying the bigger vehicle. I tow close to home and very rarely tow with the F350.
Ranger 1/4ton truck
F150 1/2ton truck
F250 3/4ton truck
F350 1ton truck
Yes they will all carry much more weight than what the number says but that is what they are called. I can safely carry more than a 1000lbs in my dodge 1500 but it is still called a 1/2ton truck.
