I have a 98 dodge ram 1500 with a 5.9 gasser in it.. i pull a tandem axle trailer with e-brakes, and ROUTIENLY pick up 2000# of feed or more.. also haul tractors up to nearly 5000# on that 1740# trailer... or 2 equines in a bumper pull trailer..

I have had a round bale of hay in the back of the bed.. hay was 1200#.. didn't really notice it.

Have had a pallet of wet sod in the back of that truck as well... deffinately noticed it.. but it wasn't bottomed on the springs. That HAD to weigh more than 2000# I'm sure.. even using new math.. etc.

In a trailer you'll be fine. My Camy tows almost 2K without a problem.

I would not haul 2K in the bed of my Chevy 1500. It seems to get low in the springs not too far over 1K.

I assume you were going to use a trailer?

Thanks. I don"t have a trailer, which is why i thought I would get some other opinions. I know it will pull it as I have towed N"s before but i want to set a ton of pellets in it at the "Big Box Store".

Figured it would be easier if I could do it in one load. Of course, I hauled 36 2x8 16 footers and some 2x6"s and sheets of wafer board all in the same load in the box. She knew she had a load but seemed fine. Wasn"t sitting on the springs.

Anyway, thanks! Smile

It might haul a ton and not notice, depends on the rear springs. Just be careful, because that much weight will affect the steering and stability.

Drove an old '69 Chevy 1/2 ton work truck for years that had rear coils, which were not particularly well thought of for bearing a load.

Had some pretty wicked loads on it that near put the step bumper on the ground, but never knew what a ton "looked like", until the time I fetched a load of cold patch with it. 2100 pound payload according to the scales and that load barely compressed the springs.

Around here, one ton of pellets go for about $200 this fall.

Should be OK, especially if not too far and not too fast. I hauled 3K gravel in my 150 (once - 15 miles) and hauled 5.4K limestone in my 350 (once - 5 miles).
Didn't bust/hit/run off the road or anything either time.

Don't forget, that the rated hauling capacity of any vehicle is based on the tires being inflated to specifications. If they are low or rotten, the sidewalls become so hot that tire failure is possible.

Ditto that on old iron. I had 2035 lb. of tearoff shingles on my '69 F-100 (240 L6, longbed styleside). Front end was up in the air and real light on the steering, but still had some flex left in the springs... Funny thing is that it gets the same mileage loaded or empty.
