The sticker will represent the payload as the truck is weighed after it rolls off the assembly line. You would have to weigh your truck to get an accurate number for your remaining payload after the additions.
Even my truck is down from the doorjamb sticker a couple hundred pounds after it gets the usual treatment of undercoating, spray in bedliner, and toneau cover. Dealer added vs factory added options will also reduce payload.
I find it very interesting how big the range of payload is for all these trucks. I bet a lot of the 3/4 ton diesels pulling a big 5th wheel are overloaded a fair bit.
