Are You Overloading Your Truck? Towing Versus Payload Capacity

If you're confused about the difference between the towing and payload capacity of a vehicle, you're at risk of putting too much weight into the bed of your truck. This can cause damage to the chassis, frame, tires, and suspension, so it's important to known what each number means.

The payload capacity of a truck is generally less than its towing capacity. Payload is anything that is placed between the bumpers of a truck, either in the cab or the bed, including passengers. The towing capacity limits the amount of weight that can be pulled behind a truck. It doesn't matter where the hitch is attached.
