Exactly.

That tundra take 3 pallets and will run 95 up hill, getting 47 mpg, pulling the space shuttle and slaying split tail like rowdy piper

I'm not, but I will when these wear out. Couldn't justify paying for them and selling them for $400 and then pay $1200 for a new set. Feed store is only 25 miles from the lease

A lot depends if your talking about a short trip from the local feed store to the lease or hauling it down the interstate for hours. Obviously you can get away with a little bit more on the short trip. On most half ton trucks the weak link in the equation is the rear axle. If your only running P rated tires I'd be worried on the highway with anything over 20bags. On a short trip unloading the same day I wouldn't worry much about up to 40 bags but take any rough roads slowly. Also try to keep the weight as far forward in the bed as possible so the front axle takes some of the weight.

I've never put more than 40 bags in a 1/2 ton, my record though is 16 in a VW golf. Here's my 3/4 ton with 2500# and I wouldn't want to haul that much on the highway. The tool box is preventing proper weight distribution and it gets light on the front end.

Old 1/2 ton chevy that I once took to the lease hauled 40 bags without issue. In my 3/4 ton I have hauled 100 more times than I can count.

Default corn 50lbs bags?

Ran 40 50lb sacks yesterday with my airbags in the Tundra. Truck was still level with no sag. Those airbags are well worth the $299. With our rocky roads and hills, itís good peace of mind for the feed and 550 gallons of water we haul to each of the four pens.

With this short bed, I might could get 50 in it but 40 seems to be the max Iíll roll with. Being 25 miles from the feed store, Iíll make 2 trips before I get stupid if I need a lot more.

Thatís the only thing I ever worried about with 60 bags in my old 3/4 ton, was all that weight on the back tires and a semi sharp rock. Never had any trouble, but I was glad to have 10 plies.

I’m hauling 50 bags every trip in my tundra about 45 miles. I’m going to either go to a trailer or get some bags.

I’m thinking a trailer would be best, just hate leaving it out in the sun at the lease for the tires to just rot, but don’t want to drag it 6 hours each time. Lol

My Tundra spring pack has an add-a-leaf in the rear and E-rated tires.
415 miles one way to the panahandle with 40 bags today.
I do it every month.

Hauling a decent amount of feed with a half-tonís stock C-rated tires would be a concern to me.

I got a heavy duty 16’ trailer if we need more than 2 or more pallets. Drag trailer and split at camp. It’s not a big issue. Seems a little generic for a simple answer. To each their own, as everyone is unique and has their own process. Doesn’t matter at the end of the day as long as your throwing corn.

I hauled 40 the other day 10 miles down the road and thru the big ranch.

I would not personally carry more then that, especially on longer trips.

Longer trips going 60-75 MPH I am comfy with 30 max

I put 15 in my Toyota Rav4. Fealt like 20 would have been now big deal. Was in a pinch and had to pick it up after work and get it home which was 30 min away. was actually surprised. Now when I had a Honda CRV, I loaded that baby down one time, and it was like driving on ice. With my first gen tundra, I'd do 30 bags without thinking twice. I've heaped the whole bed full of manure(when I was younger and dumber) for my garden several times without any issue. Who knows what that weighed. Truck still drives great, but I hade her squatted pretty good one time with a little bit to much manure in back......


These were all shorter trips through the country. I've got a trailer now.
