Payload and Towing Capacity Are Not the Same Thing

As a truck owner, you need to know that payload and towing capacity are separate concepts. Payload is the amount of weight that the truck can withstand while driving around Raleigh. A truck's towing capacity refers to how much it can haul behind it.

Usually, trucks can haul more weight than you can physically put inside of the vehicle. This is important to know because overburdening your truck can result in damage to the axle or other important components. Therefore, you don't want to assume that you can put up to 10,000 pounds in the vehicle itself when it isn't designed to do so.

It is important that you don't attempt to haul objects that are heavier than the truck's towing capacity. This can also result in damage to important components, and the damage may not be covered by a warranty or other type of protection plan.
