I don't think you can blame the truck for not doing your homework. If you're buying any vehicle for towing, there are 3 numbers that are important:(1) the payload capacity of the truck (because of the tongue weight of the trailer that the truck must carry, along with passengers and cargo), (2) the towing capacity of the truck and (3) the GCVWR of the truck. All three of those numbers have to work. There are lots of Ram and Ford 1/2 tons that are "rated" to tow 10,000 lbs., but when you do the math on the cargo capacity or the GCVWR, you'll find that you're overloaded with a couple of passengers or some stuff in the bed.Report it
