Learning the Difference in Towing vs. Payload Capacity

?If you still get confused when talking about the difference between towing vs. payload capacity, Yarmon Ford Inc. is going to help clear things up right now for you.

The payload capacity in your truck is everything you put inside the bed or the cab. This is not about pulling anything behind the truck, it is all about what weight is added on top of the frame. This makes a huge difference because the frame can support the weight easily, it is towing where the frame has to be pushed to the limits.

The towing capacity is when the truck is pulling either something by the bumper or the trailer hitch. Regardless if you are dragging a car across your property or towing the boat on the trailer by way of the bumper hitch, its towing capacity.
