    Ford Load and Capacity Guide by Vin Number

    I don't know if this is new or not, but I just became aware of a Ford Motor Company site that will give you very detailed capacity and load information from a Vin Number. I've seen other sites like this, but the information is more general. I've entered three trucks that I am familiar with into this site and it provides the "yellow sticker" info exactly and also provides the GCWR which is sometime a little difficult to find. Hope this helps someone. https://fordfleetlive.com/#/VinCalculator

    OMG! This is gold. I just checked and it’s perfectly accurate as far as truck configuration, payload etc goes. This is a keeper.

    You can enter a vin for any Ford truck you may be interested in and get accurate Payload.

    I’m using it on my iPad. Cut and paste the vin from my notes and it comes right up.

    So many folks trying to check their available payload, the servers probably crashed.

    Try just entering the last 8 digits.

    I even tried with your VIN in case I had mine wrong and still nothing. The tongue weight from GVWR works on the trailer section, but that is it.
