not sure what the bed capacity is on my truck but i put it to the test the other day. loaded it up with wet sand, piled as high as the roof. my brother said he can lift 1800lbs quite easily with his bobcat, with a full bucket of sand he had a hard time not standing it on its nose, he figured each bucket was 2000lbs, and he put 4 1/2 buckets, we estimate there was between 8000 and 10000lbs in the box. it was sagging pretty good but not bottomed out.

I know you can overload a dumptruck or pup in a heart beat with sand, especially if it's wet.... I'm a little surprised you were not on the bump stops though.
