The terms "1 ton, 3/4 ton, and 1/2 ton" are meaningless in today`s truck payload ratings. My "3/4 ton" 2500 has a payload rating on the door sticker of over 3400 lbs, well over a ton and a half.....That rating is a bit on the high side for a 2500 because it is 2WD and a gas engine, but most are well over 2000lbs.

Payload and tow rating are different.... 1/2 tons run out of payload before tow rating.... Why are you so upset ? It's a good truck but facts were being told....

A one ton will handle well over 2000lbs in the box, also known as payload...

I don't think you are tracking on this subject. My "1/2 ton" F150 can carry 1,770lbs in the bed. Most "3/4 ton" truck can carry over 2,220lbs and most "1 ton" trucks can carry well over 3,000lbs. The "ton" terminology is an old school reference that doesn't mean anything these days. And yes, 800lbs of payload for a truck is terrible.

I have a 2011 Ford that uses DEF. When towing our fiver, it will need 2 1/2 gallon of def every 2700 miles. As someone else mentioned, its much cheaper in a service isle then if you buy it in jugs. Either way, its not an issue. Not familiar with Dodges system but on a Ford it will tell you when you are down to 800 mile from empty. Very easy and cheap item to deal with.

Indeed I am looking at the crew cab, 4 x 4 ecodiesel, and 800 of payload won't cut it, if that's the case. I am surprised because I thought I looked it up specifically and that it had 1250 or something like that... dissapointing...

That is horrible payload, you can not pull much without going over payload. Sad as it seems that the MPG is great.
