Default Testing the load capacity in my Tacoma today...

5.5' box was filled with bricks. Springs weren't bottomed out but close. I think I could have put another 100 pounds in it

I did 3,600 lbs of asphalt and dirt/rocks in my F150. Not on purpose.

I have more respect for my truck and others on the road to grossly overload it

Holly crap it’s cheap to dump down there. All the places around me are $90/ton $70 minimum.

When you get on the scale coming into the dump they estimate what the price will be then take that as a deposit. They guessed wrong, I had to give them another $5.24

Here's the details of my truck, I have a short bed. Yeah, I guess you could call it a 1/2 ton. I was pushing it a little

The 2019 Toyota Tacoma is a capable vehicle that can carry and tow a lot of weight. The Toyota Tacoma can tow up to 6,400 pounds, and the tongue load is 640 pounds. The Tacoma also has a payload capacity of 1,175 pounds on the short bed and 1,370 pounds on the long bed.

The directional drilling co I was working for bought pipe bursting equip from a company that went out of business so I hopped state line in an old F450 steel bed and loaded up . A lot of short heavy screw together drill pipe sections . Truck was really sluggish so when I stopped for a bite to eat on the 4 hr drive home I weighed it . 23K .... oops

Back in 1986 they made a Toyota one ton that looked like every other long bed Toyota truck. Very stiff springs and E rated tires. It was the roughest riding vehicle I ever drove. I could stand on the rear bumper and jump up and down and it would not move more than an inch or two.
A 16X7 garage door, with track and hardware weighed 230-240 pounds each and I carried 8 on top of the numerous times and 3 or 4 doors on it a couple times a week for several years.
I shingled my new to me house in 1994. I was able to load about 2500 pounds of shingles in the bed without it bottoming out. The fork lift driver was amazed.

That's about normal for down here, just keep an eye on your tires. I have seen issues with the belts letting go within a couple weeks, usually p-rated tires

I pull those things when I do short loads out of Elwood IL. Prices will hit close to 50 grand next year on those things. When I looked into beach trucks I went with the toyota Tacoma dew to weight itself not pulling but its a good built 4x4. Just beach surf fishing truck so never any weight but the things don't get any better fuel millage than my dodge dually. Last two years the newer ones went up in the 20 mpg but mines a 06. Just be careful.

I brought a 1720# pallet of product home from a trucking terminal in my 2018 Ridgeline. Looked like I had “squatted” the truck, except for the rear wheels being at a 30-degree angle from vertical.

I have received several more of those same deliveries since, but I let the trucking company deliver!

at least in NJ, the scales are certified by weights and measures. So they are accurate. They round to the nearest 20lb but that is close enough when you are usually weighing in 20k lbs
