When I had my 2004 F150 Crew Cab w/ the 5.4L it had a payload right around 1600#.

Ended up 200# over my GVWR rating pulling a barely 6000# trailer with 650# of tongue weight (plus 3 passengers, a generator, firewood, tool boxes, etc)

Which is why I now own a 2500HD with a 2800# payload

Thanks every one. It looks like I can order a configuration to get what I want, but I may be able to deal better for a 3/4 ton on the lot.

I have similar equipment to WyEm. My 2010 F150 XLT 4x4, max tow equipped with the 5.4L engine and the short 5.5ft box has a payload of 1,727 on the door sticker and an actual payload of 1,635 due to some aftermarket options. And that's a 2010. The current F-150s have several hundred pounds more of payload due to their aluminum construction, so you can certainly find a half ton out there with an 1,800 lb. payload if properly equipped. Even back in 2010 Ford was making "max payload" F-150s that could carry several hundred lbs more than my truck (I looked for one but they're rare). Good luck!

Yellow sticker in door jam is the tire rating, the trucks payload may be found in the owners manual or the manufactures web site. To reach this number you may need a higher load rated tire.

My personal opinion is that going to a 3/4 ton truck is the best way to go. With a 1/2 truck you will most likely run out of GVWR before you reach your trucks tow and payload rating.

+1 why push it, there are plenty of good 3/4 tons new and slightly used.

While any of the big three will get it done, don't rule out the gmc/Chevy because the local guy isn't willing to work with you. If you have another one a little further out shop them... Local gmc dealer here is really proud of their trucks lol and want top dollar for them. I don't buy from them for that reason....
