    My buddy's F150 has more payload and gets a lot better mpg too and with the 3.5EB will leave me for dead on the road as well. Kind of embarrassing really but it is what it is.

    hard to compare a f150 to a power wagon.. would be easier to compare a ram 1500 to a Ford 150..

    Thanks. The above were my thoughts too.

    If you want a Power Wagon to be a 3/4 ton truck, then it's got to have at least a 1,500 pound load capacity. I wasn't comparing it to anything including a Cummins 2500 or a Ram 1500. The more options, the more weight and less payload. Once it gets below 1,500 pounds, it's no longer technically capable of hauling a 3/4 ton load.

    Here's my capacity on a 2016 Tradesman. It's 1,446 pound payload is below 3/4 ton. It doesn't have any options that I can think of other than the Power Wagon package. Bare bones and technically it can't haul 3/4 of a ton. Maybe the carpets or the spare tire took away the 3/4 ton capacity.

    people put winches on F150's :) we have offroaded together many years in jeeps and neither of us are strangers to helping the other out with winches.
