My Ford F150 standard cab, 4WD, six-cylinder gas engine, and 8' bed weighs 4800 lbs. That is 2.2 "tonnes" and 2.4 "tons."
Not sure where Redline gets his weights from. I'm a little surprised that diesel only came in at 6200. I rolled my 2nd gen Dodge 2500 with 5.9 l gas V8,extended cab, and short box onto the scales with a canopy and weighed in at 7700.

I had an 88 F150 reg cab 8' box 2wd with the inline 6. Weighed 4400. Real good trucks. That straight 6 was good for hauling stuff around.

What you may do with a toy suited rock climbing vs towing is 2 different things..

FWIW, My '98 Ranger with 2.5L four and manual tranny tips the scales at about 3000 lbs, or A TON AND A HALF (interpret that any way you like).
The '89 Mazda B2200 it replaced only weighed about 2660 lbs.
Haven't put a heavy load in the Ford, but the Mazda carried 3 diesel engines about 50 miles one time....about 2000 lbs.

That just depends on what you're looking for and hwat you mainly use the truck for. They both have their pros and cons but personally own F-250 diesel truck, extended crew cab and 8 ft truck bed. used to tow my wife and i's boat worked really well. bit bigger for parking but we tow lot of stuff with it and very helpful when helping friends. we pulled our friends Chevy suburban out of the snow because it got stuck! haha havent taken it too much off road except in snow. good luck hope you find a good truck
