All I know is that my ranger has a 1050lbs payload and when I looked at the ram eco diesel outdoorsman vs Laramie, the payload dropped by almost 200lbs between the 2 trim levels and the Laramie payload was less than the ranger. It was a crew cab with 4wd. That's why I'm looking into the new F150. All the weight savings goes into increasing the trucks capabilities.

Not much in the way of weight savings when its 90lbs less than a gmc

Now that's a truck! They actually had attachments for them so they could be used as a tractor and to operate farm equipment!

I have the payload package. It can carry 1750 and requires a Class 2 payload sticker in PA.

same here. They're all clean as a whistle or dirty as a 40-year-old hooker

You realize the cleanest whistles come from 40 year old hookers.

Mine is in between too. The outside still looks pretty good but the bed is scratched and dented pretty bad. No one can say I baby it. Got a load of busted up cinder blocks in it for the dump tomorrow. You should have seen the look on my buddy's face when I showed up in it a month after I bought for a wood cutting party. Told him I bought it to haul crap and the sooner the bed gets beat up the sooner and easier it will be to bed line it.
