Default 06 payload question

hey guys, i have an 06 f150 xlt 5.4 with the towing package 4x2 flareside. I was wondering how much weight i can put in the bed of my truck. im looking to put a fourwheeler in there that weighs around 850lbs do you think that will be ok or will i overload it? also is the space between the fenderwells the same on a styleside vs a flareside? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Ha the 4 wheeler would be nothing. The payload is about 3000lbs. and the styleside will have more room.

I agree with the first part, the 4 wheeler will be fine. But I'm pretty sure he doesn't have 3000lb payload on an FX2. He should check the tag or window sticker if he has it and see which payload package the truck has. More than likely it's around 1800lbs. Which still is much more than his 4 wheeler.

You'll be fine. A few months ago we put 2,000lbs of concrete in back of my truck and it hardly sagged.

That 4wheeler will be no issues. I have had the bed of the truck full of lanscape rock and the rear was just starting to squat.

thanks guys. i was mainly worried bout it fitting in the bed since it is a flareside. it did fit just fine and only squatted slightly. it was a tight fit though the tires on the fourwheeler somwhat rubbed going in took two shots to make it through without any problem. haha
