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.

If I have one thousand pounds of scrap metal on back of ford 150 what will it do

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.
