There is a sticker inside your glovebox that has the cargo weight rating. It is also described in your manual. The rating varies depending on options.

depending on truck style (reg. cab, x-cab, short box, long box) the range is anywhere from 1400-1800 lbs- if you tell me the body style and box size I can get more specific- I hope this helps.

Well, it's a half ton truck, so I would keep it in the 1,000 lb vacinity. Over filling it can be dangerous to the safe handling while driving, and hard on the suspension components like shocks, springs, etc.

I have carried 3,000 pounds in my F150 but I have heavy duty tires and overloads. I don't recommend it but it worked just fine.

Yea me too... carried up to 4000lbs in my 1990 F150. Just put some heavy duty bump stops under rear axle so the bed doesnt sag and Im good to go. Trucks pull more than their rated... its just a safety thing for most out there who freak out on the road.
