I'm attaching a photo of the yellow sticker on a 2017 2.7L 4x4 crew cab, short bed, XL model with the optional payload package...shows it increasing payload about 300 lbs over ones I saw without the package (1900 vs 1600). The 3.5L EB I've seen have around 2000 lb payload depending on the build. Improvements in the 3.5L EB engine and 10 spd transmission are swaying me toward that choice. I'm anxious to hear reports of how it tows.
If I find that my current payload is on the "lighter" side, I intend to install these: Roadmaster Active Suspension Kit RAS Vehicle Suspension RAS3611-S
