I have been reading stuff on this site for MANY years and decided to join up tonight after seeing the ford guy posting his mythical loads.

This is my 89 GMC K1500 with 2 inch blocks and 3/4 ton rear leaf springs. The truck is sitting on 285/70R18 Goodyear Kevlar MTR's E range and measure 35.1 inches tall.

This pic is with 1,800 lbs in the bed


This pic is with 2400 lbs in the bed


This is my brothers 91 C1500 Sierra with 3/4 ton springs and load helpers with 5,000 lbs in the bed. For the record, this did polish off that nice 10 bolt. They weren't designed for that. I don't recall the amount of air he had in is rear tires, but I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone.



Now, posting all this, I have driven many of the bubble body F150 trucks. Once you get around 1,500 lbs in the bed, your done. They just don't have that kinda load capacity. We snapped the frame by the steering box and above the rear axle in one with 1,800 lbs in the bed when my buddy hit a dip in the road.

A yard of dirt is 1,800 to 2,300 lbs. 2 yards of dirt would then be 3,600 to 4,600 lbs.

Now, I will give you a bit of credit because some people define a yard differently. 3,600 to 4,600 lbs of dirt wouldn't physically fit into a bed of a pickup. Working the scales at a local salvage yard, I have seen a pickup truck load full of dirt. It only weighed around 1,200 lbs. Not impressive.

A picture of a layman's yard of dirt measured in weight


A measured cubic yard of dirt would be the amount of dirt to fill a 3 x 3 x 3 ft container. Not an impressive amount of weight.

He showed your masterbeatty, he wipped out his ENORMOUS E-penis and gave you a huge mushroom stamp on the cheek.

Either way, cttandy, this thread is almost 2 years old, which makes you a DICK for bringing it back to the top.

Well, pardon me for bringing up an old thread. Say what you must about that. Sorry, didn't mean to stir the pot of a sore topic.


I am just seeing this post for the first time and get very tickled at what people post for weights. Like I said, I worked a set of large scales for awhile and saw a little bit of everything coming through. Not trying to be a dick, but sharing facts.

Well, if nothing else, maybe this will be a reminder to people that a 1/2ton truck should be used like one, and heavier loads should be moved properly. Just because my truck or anyone else's might be able to carry a load, doesn't mean it should.

Why? He has something new to add to the thread and it doesn't appear to be all bullshit.

70 concrete blocks, a hitch hauler that weighs ~110lbs, a 300lb tiller on it, a line trimmer, and a chainsaw on a 1/2 ton truck:

I've had my 2wd 3/4 ton haul in over 6700# just in the back of the truck. If I could find the weight slip from the scrap yard I could prove it. But someone else on this site can vouce for it. It was the smoothest ride I have ever felt from it and it finally sat level.

althought the owner on the truck and trailer is a dumb ass for worrying about his fenders that badly. my dad had the same exact truck and pulled a rock crusher mandrel weighing 11500 on a trailer weighing nearly 5000. pulled that load over 8 hours straight from northern lower michigan to the milwaukee area with no problems other then the brakes didnt like it when slowing down. if he would have had the proper trailer and loaded the weight properly it might have worked. but in the end this guy is one retarded piece of work for even thinking this would work

no high cent those are real numbers and its not bs i promise you it was loaded properly to where the trailer took the weight like it should and just enough tongue weight to keep it from getting squirrly. to bad i dont have pictures to post like everyone else.

i have an 07 silverado ex-cab half ton that we pull 8000 lbs of hay on a 2400lb trailer with no problems. only gets 8mpg but still pulls right along at 60-65 mph. its all in how you load the trailer to keep the weight on the trailer and not put it on the truck. thats how you end up with dumbasses like the one shown in the posting.

A properly loaded trailer should not put excessive weight on the truck. I pulled a EXT astro van loaded dash to tailgate/floor to ceiling with receiver hitches and other metal truck parts. It laid flat on the ground and blew the tires out. I pulled it on a 2800 lbs steel trailer. I don't want to speculate the weight of it as my friends didn't have their scale yet. I know their loader wouldn't lift the van, and the loader was rated at 10K. I pulled it behind a 1/2 ton truck. In the one mile trip, I blew out 3 trailer tires.

My brother pulled what was left of a bulldozer behind his 94 K1500 Suburban. It does have airbag helpers on the rear axle, and a load leveling hitch.
