    So on the 4x4 TRD Sport, the payload is 1295.......?

    Meaning, minus:

    Me: 220lbs
    Gf: 120lbs

    I can safely only put around 900-955lbs in the bed????

    I thought it'd be a lot more than that.

    Half-ton payload is about right for today's midsize trucks.

    I guess I'd need to invest in a trailer then.

    You think that's bad? Try a 4x4 DC LB with tow package. Payload starts at 991 lbs. Subtract me, wife, daughter, misc stuff, and I'm down to 500 lbs for the bed.

    Last I checked a half ton Chevy isn't much better......big payload starts with 3/4 ton trucks

    Now start adding armor and see how much payload capacity is left. :)
