look on plate on driver door,it will say its towing capacity.
or you can use common sense, F-150 means it can haul up to a half ton before the weight messes with the ride hieght and handling of the truck
If memory serves...stock light duty f150 can tow up to 5000lbs with a tongue weight of 500lbs. I've seen them with aftermarket equipment tow up to 12000 but I wouldn't suggest it.
the 1982 F-150 can tow up to 8,500lbs im sure you could get a few more in there if you were carefull just make sure your trucks in good enough shape to do it
maybe you should do a little research before you throw your common sense at people
I knew the haulage just wasn't sure of the towing two different things
well if your wanting to know how much you can pull with a half ton, it pretty much varies, now i dont exactly know how much for each set up, but it depends on what motor and transmission set up you have, how well does the motor run, little things like that, and since you have an 82, you most likely have the inline six or 400 (350-m, -w, or -c) most half ton trucks can pull anything, not very fast, but with my half ton, ive pulled trailer houses, semis, dump trucks, and other pick ups with out any problems, but speed will be the only issue
I thought that was its towing capacity. So i can tell this idiot that he cant haul 19 tons at 55 mph with 15mpg with an 82 F 150? lol its what this guy said. haha
How much weight can I pull on a trailer and with how much weight on the bed my 89. F150 5 speed?
