Last year, I ran to the rock yard and had 3/4 ton of rock dumped in and then 15 landscape bricks thrown in to start my project on the side yard. So about 1680 lbs in rock and then another 300 lbs in bricks (guessing)...1980 lbs total and we sagged all the way back to the house. Engine and trani could have cared less, but the ride was a little less then what I would like. IMHO, shen it comes to bed weight, the 04.5 i had sat better then the 06 i'm running now.

I think the payload weight on a stock 2500 is around 1800 pounds. Every truck is going to be slightly different as far as actual payload wight is concerned. I'm level at 2K.

I hauled a load of broken tile to the dump a couple months back. It was right around 2300 lbs. There were no problems and the truck still looked level (SRW). :peelout I also have a custom rear bumper and a topper that never come off. The truck tips the scales at about 8000 lbs with 1/2 tank and 2 people in the truck.

I've had right at 3,000 pounds of sand in the back of SRW.

Let's just say you could tell it was loaded down. :lol3: But it handled it just fine.

IIRC my 06 QC 4x4 Short bed had a paper in the glove box that it was only rated for 2250 lb in the bed. IIRC the long bed trucks can take around 2500-2800 lbs.
