I hauled 1600 lbs of concrete back when I was stock height and I thought that was a lot. Can't believe you did 3000 lbs.

Hauled two 250 gallon of water containers. One was full, it was placed closest to the cab the empty one was on the rear so I could unload it by hand. Then I transferred the water from the full one inside my truck bed to the empty one on the ground.

Water weighs 8.33 lbs per gallon = 2,082.5 lbs
Plus two containers = (@150 lbs each)

Hauled it almost 20 miles up & down rolling hills along a curvy 2 lane country back road.

Before that I hauled all of the 1/2" decking plywood, plus tar paper rolls, plus shingles for the roof to a 20'x20' cabin I built.

Both times my tires were rubbing on the fender wells.

I have also hauled a 5 piece leather sectional. It had 2 reclining sections, pull out sleeper and a chaise lounge. Hauled it over 100 miles. Heavy & an awkward load to strap down.


The largest towing I've done was a 16ft double axle enclosed trailer w/ barn doors in the back and a sidedoor & rooftop air conditioning. It was loaded with tables, chairs and camping equipment and sound system. I was turbo charged with this feat. Barking the tires when shifting to second gear.
I was more curious if I could actually do it than I was safe. No safety chains, no trailer brakes, no tow hitch (just a ball on the bumper)
On the first flat part of the road, I gave it all she got from a stop out to about 1/2mi. I got it up to 80+mph. After than, I slowed it down to norval speeds for the country road I was on. I pulled it great for the short 20 miles I needed to pull it.

I use it as the truck it is. Many times hauling my Harley Davidson bagger. Once from Arkansas to El Paso, TX. & back.

Pickups typically ride better with weight in the bed, because they're designed to be hauling weight. That's why I often left my winter sand bags loaded all year round.
