Cant speak to the 2016 specs, but the payload ratings for my 2015 crew cab long bed with the 6.4 engine and 4.10 rear end is 3480lbs. In the payload table the 4.10 adds a big jump up in payload numbers. For what its worth we have towed in arizonas mountans successfully and no complaints towing our 34ft eagle light 5th wheel (31.5 RLDS). Would buy the same configuration truck again!!!
