Understanding Towing and Payload Capacity

Overloading the bed or cab of your truck because you think that towing and payload capacity are the same thing could damage the chassis, suspension, tires, and frame of your vehicle. Understanding the difference between the two ratings is an important step towards protecting your truck.

The towing capacity of a truck is the limit on the weight that can be pulled behind the truck with a hitch. The hitch can be attached either in the bed of the truck or under the bumper. If you're loading cargo into your truck, either in the bed or the cab, you need to pay attention to the payload capacity.
