Got a Roofing project at the house this weekend......My little trailer would help me but the tires are suspect. Can the Titan handle 2000 lbs of material in the bed????

Figured it like this:

27 bundles of shingles @ 70 pounds a bundle = 1890
4 rolls of paper @ 15 pounds a roll = 60
Roof nails = 45
3 sheets of 1/2 plywood @ 15 lbs a sheet = 45


Does those figures sound about right??

Easy answer: no. I'd make two trips.

That said, if you take it easy you should be ok.

Dang...this helps but does not help :redblob"

I remember loading up my old 1995 Hardbody 4X4 with a Utlity pole, Concrete steps, and some other items. Had it squatting but it made it......Just figured the Titan could handle the weight.

Any other hard facts of over payload from you guys would make me feel better. 2 trips suck, but it is safer I guess.

Make two trips - why take a chance?

Guys have done this... I know I've seen reports of 2K+ in the bed.

That said, this puts a lot of strain on your truck. I've had to replace wheel bearings and other suspension components on old trucks because of overloading it.

Like I said...it "can" be done but if it were me that's two trips.

About a year ago, I put in 2000 lbs. worth of landscaping stones for our yard. Nothing happened, but it put the bed way down. I probably shouldn't of done it, but I didn't care... plus they over design things usually.

I don't know what year your Titan is but if it's an 07 or earlier and you have the old shackles I wouldn't do it.

I've had over 2300# in it more than once. I just loaded as far forward as possible and took it easy. Went about 15 miles. That said though, I do have the '08 with newer shackles. Can it handle it? Sure. Would I do it on a regular basis? Probably not. One of the times I also had a load of 3300lbs of stone in tow. Most trucks are overdesigned but it doesnt mean is should be assumed and abused. Just my thoughts.

I saw the title "2000 lbs in the bed" and had flashbacks to my not-so-sober years.

As much as me and everyone on here brags about how great these trucks are, it's pretty bad if you can't haul 2000 lbs! My buddy at work said he put 3000 pounds in a '04 ford ranger, he said it bottomed the springs out but it was fine thereafter.

uuuuuhh, was he drunk and remembers that correctly or was it a really beat up ranger that he didn't care about? oh you can do it, i have on more than a couple of occasions, but only because it was for a short trip.

Yes it could be done. Would I do it? No.

Buy you some overload springs and "getter done". it would be hard on your truck but it can handle it. I had a 2003 dodge hemi 4x4 regular cab and carried an easy 1500lbs in it all the time my Polaris 800 with fuel 200lbs of water for camping a mountain bike a grill and loading ramps.. never one problem with the dodge. I am pretty sure the titan can handle it as well..

On one of my work site titans we hauled a lil over 2k. It was only for like 6 miles so it was fine. The truck's *** was low though..i wouldn't recommend leaving it loaded for too long. Just be careful. By the way..the back of the truck is gonna feel very wishy washy (sorry for the childish term). take it slow.
