1 full pallet of 80lb concrete bags, im not sure the total weight (donít remember how many bags there where) but I know it was over the hauling capacity of my stock 86 f250. it made it no problem though (20+ miles)

close to 1 ton of concrete in the bed of my truck. The truck didn't like it very much but it only had to be taken across a parking lot. This is part of the reason I need new leaf springs.

1400 lbs of sand. Drove it 35 miles. Handled it like a champ. Then I hauled 1000 lbs of bricks for the same guy a little over 65 miles. His damn patio owes me.

Haha... other then that most like beds and stuff for friends. I've hauled way too much damn furniture. Price of owning a truck I guess. Seems like I'm helping a friend move every other week. Not heavy but it's a pain in the ****.

The most weight I've had in the back of my truck would be my bull elk and pulling the travel trailer.

This big boy (except it was gutted)

Also pulling this travel trailer with the elk in the bed

worst gas mileage ever, average 8-10mpg on the trip back while loaded down, floring it up every hill just to maintain my 55-65 speed. On big hill I'd drop down to 45-50mph, still flooring it.

All you guys loading excessive weight in your pickups might want to check those axle seals...sounds like a good way to break parts.
My comany has brand new F-150's and we blew two trucks axle seals overloading them with bed weight. Total repairs cost 450.00 per truck, NOT SMART!!!
I try never to haul anything in my Ranger and if I do I get a trailer!
