4cyl-Need to put 800 pounds in my truck TOMORROW?

I've searched and didn't really find what I was looking for. I need to haul 800 pounds of feed in the bed of my truck for a 2 hour drive on 65mph plus roads. So I think with two passengers and some stuff it will easily be 1000 pounds. In the OWNERS MANUEL( I used caps because I actually looked) it lists the payload as 800 I think, but I'm wondering if this will be bad for the truck. Thanks for any help. I'm doing this tomorrow. (2004 2.7l Regular Cab)

I thought the payload was listed at 1200 or 1300 including passengers? I know the 4-cylinder 4x4 Access Cab is 1300lbs. "Manual", btw, unless there's an owner of a mexican guy.

Sorry, you're first gen, ignore me.

Point well taken. But 1300lbs is the payload for a 2nd gen 4cyl?

For the second gen four cylinder with the 4x4 suspension, for sure. I think even the 5-luggers are 1200 or something. But I have no idea for first gens.

Your springs are also older, being an 04. You may be riding on your bumpstops with that much weight.

Rent a trailer the tonge weight would be less. And renting a trailer will cost less than damaging your truck. But your clutch is what's gunna hurt the most. Or just rent a truck.

X2 on the trailer. A cheapo open flatbed wouldn't cost much (or just borrow one from somebody else), and it'd be plenty.

Thats not fun. Basically, you n your buddy(400) the load (800)and gas/gear(200) and anything else you put on the truck is the load You could be over the load by 600lb dependng on you n you buddies weight.

Also , I'm not familiar with the gen1 weights. I would suggest you graciously let your buddy borrow your truck, to get 600lb of feed ...for you. 400 lb less but still over a bit.ps be a nice guy and buy him gas.

Wow, great to get a quick response thanks. Its for my friends farm, so I'm pretty much doing him a favor for some good pork and veggies and obviously gas. Maybe it would be wiser to take two 400lbs loads? I'm also guessing that it would drive like shit with 1000lbs in it. Or a trailer? Or I could borrow the new ford f-550 from work just for the weekend?

Any of the above would probably be smart. Depends how far you have to move it, too. But yeah, 2 trips, a trailer, or another truck, any of those would probably work fine.

Jeez, an 550? You guys pulling houses?! Pretty sure it could haul your feed, you, your friend, your friend's car, your friend's house, your friend's kitchen sink, the feed supply place, and anything you're feeding, plus two roseannes!

I've had 1200# of grain in sacks on a pallet in the back 6 times and you can add 230lbs for me. Little squirrelly on the interstate but no problems.

Are you sure it says 800lbs? I am pretty sure it's 1500 lbs payload. 800 might be kilos? I had a company truck that was an 04 Taco 5lug 4x2 and I can tell you for sure that we had 1000 lbs in it day in and day out. We actually still have it, someone else drives it now, it's got 150K on it and runs fine. The 5 lug 2wd trucks usually are higher payload than the 4x4s just because they weigh less to start with. I know for sure that the 09 5lug I have at work is 1500lbs and my 06 4x4 is only 1200.

I would do it, wouldn't think twice about it.

I've hauled way MORE in concrete 50+ miles at a time before in my LOWERED truck.


I didn't even burn up the clutch.

Just do the DAMN thing.

Personally I would do it in my 4 cylinder. Just choose your gears right so you're not lugging the engine or burning the clutch. Keep the RPM's high. Usually the weight ratings are based on the stopping power of the brakes so take it slow, not so much the engine or suspension.

It'll take it, just don't get stupid. I've had firewood stack to the top of the cab in mine, and had a trailer with 2 4wheelers, camping gear, etc. on it. Not fast, just leave yourself the usual "oh shit" room and you will be all right.
