    take the actual weight of the vehicle and subtract it from the Gross vehicle weight....that is your load.....

    4 tons? Haha, sure.

    F-350 dumps are not smart purchases- no offense... you can't put hardly anything in the back. Do you have access to a scale? Fill your truck with fuel, and the normal supplies- get weighed and subtract from your GVWR. You'll be suprised how little you can legally haul. Good luck!

    A 350 size of any brand is a 1 ton truck. Thats around 2000 lb load.

    Perfectly balanced for an F450! A bit much for an f-350.

    As BIG as your coco-nuts are:rolleyes: I have towed 13K of landscape rock, thats rock weight only with my 3/4 ton Dodge. That depends on your State. here in TN if you "look" legal (no sagging) the DOT will not mess with you.
