I'd still verify with the door jamb, it maybe more specific to your truck's options

I agree. My F150 is #1830 in the book & online but the door sticker is #1537 because of the options.

I agree - since the manual provides a single value for each combination of GVWR, cab, and wheelbase, it must be for base equipment. Higher trim levels will have substantially less payload left after adding up the optional equipment.

Even better, run over a scale and subtract that from the GVWR for a real payload... which will probably still be quite suitable.

All it shows the is the GVWR, and the GAWR of both axles, for weight ratings. Am I missing something. I would like to confirm the payload rating, as it makes sense it can differ with options, but I really don't have much heavy stuff added on.

Here is a photo of the VIN sticker.

Maybe only passenger vehicles are required to show the payload. Anyway, the sticker gives the one number you need to combine with a scale reading: just subtract the scale weight from the GVWR to get payload.

The table in the manual implies the curb weight that the payload is based on: just subtract payload from GVWR to get the (base equipment) expected curb weight.

Hi Jim,
I just weighed my rig when I got done adding goodies and subtracted from the GVWR.

This is correct. Our published payload was 1960 lbs. Weighing the truck and subtracting from GVWR gave us a result of 2005 lbs.

I guess I would want to weigh it before I put much of anything in, or on, the truck. Other than driving a 250 km on it last night, it has a full tank of gas, which I assume is payload.

How would options add up to #00 lbs? Most of my options are decorative. The 20" tires, up from the 18" stock would be about the only big thing, and that can't be 100 lbs total.
