I put Timbens on my F250.

I have them on my 2500 too. Love em. Rides stock when empty and the 5er pin weight only drops the rear 1" when hitched.

I wonder why so low? My 3500 Cummins SRW 4x4 is 4075 and I have every option available on the truck...I would have thought the Hemi would have more payload?

Payload is a marketing number. Through the years all these numbers have moved up every year when in fact the basic platform (generations) have only changed a few times. I suppose a different type of paint allows more payload than last years paint color. I think red has the potential to increase payload the most, perhaps green but I can't prove that anymore than the big three can justify why 1/2 tons of 10 years ago are 1 tons today. Its about selling trucks.

spring travel and tire load range is payload.

Not sure how that is when the frames on today's trucks are completely different than those of just a few years ago. Example - Ram changed their HD frames to 50k psi cold steel and changed the design about 2 years ago...(along with other factors I am sure) jumped their payload way up. But the main component (frame) has changed significantly over the last few years...I think Chevy also uses 50k psi cold steel now as well?
