Hello, 2001 crew cab long bed 4x4 7.3, Can I haul 2775lbs of brick on a pallet in my bed. I'd be traveling about 5 miles with it.

Thanks

CAN you do it? Yeah probably

SHOULD you do it? Depends on how you feel about traveling overgross. I hauled 200 linear feet of wet redwood fence pickets in my old '86 F250. Was it comfortable..NO but you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes. If your only traveling 5 miles instead of the 20 I had to do..why not just make two trips?

I had a pallet of concrete put in the back of my 97 F-250 and had to haul it about 30 miles up and down hills and it handled it fine. Was I overloaded? Yea It accelerated just fine and it stopped fine and it handled fine. A pallet of concrete is 0ver 3200 lbs.

If you have a 7.3l diesel im assuming you should be good with that tow it could handle more

What difference does the engine make? the frame is only "rated" to carry a determined amount.

Got it done Thanks guys

Well we hauled it with no problem at all. Turned out to be 3400# not 2700# as I had thought. I just made sure not to hit any bumps in the road to hard or fast. I appreciate the input very much guys. Also really like that 73 Ranchero of Johnnyb's. Always loved those things.
