Anyone who has the 2.7 V6 payload package, regardless of the trim level, please post pictures of your door jam stickers so we can see the payload and GVWR numbers. Thanks!
I dont have a picture but the gvwr on a 2.7 ecoboost payload package is 7000#. My payload (STX supercab) with the 2.7 payload package is 1910#.

Unfortunately, you do not have any payload package. If you did your GVWR would be at least 7000 lbs. So it seems I can only get the 2.7 payload package on XL and XLT, as I feared. I need at least 1600 lbs payload, so it looks like I'm limited to the XLT if I want the 2.7 engine.
Thanks for uploading the pics!

Thanks! This confirms what I figured. At least I'll save some money by getting a XLT!

I know you said you need 1600 minimum. My 2.7 Lariat is very close at 1587, w/o payload package. I was buying off the lot and didn't need the extra headroom, so I didn't really pursue it. Just purely adding this as a data point for future folks, nothing more.

Would you mind posting a pic of your window sticker or listing the trim level (501/502) and options your truck has? There are so many variables that determine payload capacity.

for 1080 watts I would think we could get a bit more out of it.
Sounds like you are looking for volume.
Its not for boom and sizzle.
No factory stereo will ever be.
However...The sound QUALITY with a good SOURCE is actually quite good.
I like the imaging. Spaciousness. General sound quality. Actually, I have the bass turned down. It's to heavy and the front drivers are being asked to produce frequencies below 60hz. Unacceptable.

Stereos are very personal. You will never be satisfied with an oem sound system.

Sure, no problem. This is my exact truck, just in Antimatter Blue. This configuration is a staple of what this dealership orders. I liked it a lot since I wasn't interested in Power Tailgate, upgraded wheels, FX4, moonroof, etc. So many trucks were "over-configured" for what I needed. They are great options, but just not something I would use and just add to cost in my case. It's a 501A, but has both 360 2.0 Assist and the 360 Camera package. In addition, the leather bucket seats with console. When configured that way, you really only loose power-tilt/telescoping steering column, heated steering wheel, heated rear seats and LED projector lamps with dynamic bending off of the 502A package. The hardest to give up was losing the headlights, but it's $2000 in the package price, and for me, just not worth that extra step up.

Awesome thanks! I contemplated the 502A forever, but ultimately reached the same conclusion. It's just not worth the price jump from 501A.

Your configuration demonstrates once again that adding a bunch of options destroys payload capacity very quickly. Getting nearly 1600 pounds on a truck that's this well equipped is pretty impressive. I'd like to have 1700 pounds or more, just in case, but 1600 should be fine for my camping/traveling needs. That said, I'll be getting a SuperCab 6.5 box and I'm sure that changes the equation in some way. I wish Ford's configurator would just give you an estimated payload of the truck you've configured. There's no reason they couldn't do that.
