Understanding the Payload and Carrying Capacity of a Truck

Knowing how much weight a truck can carry and tow is important to ensuring that it doesn't get overloaded. Too much weight in the bed of a truck can damage the suspension, chassis, bed, and tired, while too heavy of a trailer can lead to issues with the transmission and engine.

The towing capacity of a truck refers to the amount that it can carry behind it in a trailer. It doesn't matter if the hitch is located in the bed of the truck or under the bumper. This number is generally significantly greater than the carrying capacity, which includes everything that is inside the cab and bed of the truck.
