As alluded to above - it's just a name

Different cab configs and options give different gvwr's which limit payload...

I have seen (and had) anything from 9.9k gvwr to 11.5k gvwr in very similar SRW trucks...
my current truck with hitch, me, fuel, wife, etc.. is right @ 8800 lbs so 11500- 8800 = 2700 lbs payload...
not overly worried about WHAT to call it, except gee-or-geous

If you really are sad and think nobody cares, just try missing a few payments ! '11 Monaco Diplomat 43DFT RR10R pushed by a Demco Excali-Bar II hitch which is pushed by a '14 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport.

Yeah, as others are saying when looking at Fords specs show the F350 SRW has around 11 different GVWR from 10000 up to 11500 lbs with three different RAWR packages at 6390 lbs/6730 lbs and 7000 lbs.

All F350 SRW trucks aren't equal.

In the late forties/early 50's I worked for a farmer that had a 1935 Ford that was called a 1 1/2T and we hauled 5T on it. He also had a 1942 army truck that was called a 1/2T weapons carrier that had dual rear wheels and we hauled 3t as I remember.
I bought a new F150 HD 1/2T in 1967 and a new F250 3/4T in 1976. In the 70's & 80's I had a 1955 C600, F600 (2T) 1976 F750 (2 1/2T. I remember the Fwith a single # but remember what years they were.
