Understand Towing and Payload Capacity - Protect Your Truck

Overloaded trucks can be damaged in a variety of ways. The first step to keeping the chassis, suspension, and bed of your truck safe is to understand the difference between towing capacity and payload capacity.

Towing a trailer takes much of the stress off of the frame of a truck. Because of this, the towing capacity, which is the amount of weight that a truck can pull behind it, is much greater than its payload capacity. Weight in the cab of a truck and in the bed puts stresses on many different areas of a truck. Both ratings are based on the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of a vehicle.
