Default Voideo that explains weights

Found this today, very informative, could use a few tweaks to address a couple missed items, but overall very informative.

I love the KYD channel. That being said, I think they are still over payload with the 250 diesel and new rig.
But i still love their channel and look forward to each video.

Overall, that is a good video to explain the definitions of each rating. It is very helpful to see him calculate in passengers, cargo, gear, etc. And, I really like that he touched on sales people (truck and trailer sales) focusing on UVW as opposed to GVWR. Those folks make a ton of money on quoting unrealistic #'s.

It does amaze me that the "lighter" aluminum body F250 has such a small payload at around 2,100. My steel body, 6.2l has a payload rating of 2,766 lbs. And, when purchasing mine, I looked at a 2018 F250 6.2l in the same configuration, it had a payload of 3,200+. Very impressive.

The video does have good content.

Heard the diesel takes like 1000k of payload. Either way, if you are going 250, get the gas. 350=diesel.

Thumbs up 250 Gas or 350 Diesel is the best option IMHO

I absolutely concur. Unless you need more power AND go through high elevation mountains often, 250 diesel may make sense.

He must be getting a kick back from ads. It is over 10 minutes too, and I think there is something about a time frame where it costs money. Click the link and watch, well worth it.
