Carrying Capacity

I would like to carry my polaris sportsman 500 (700 Lbs) in the bed of my 06 colorado,WT , reg cab, I4, 5 speed, 2wd. I was wondering what the carry capacity (bed weight) is for my truck. Thanks

You're fine to carry 700lbs.

Truck will sag - but you can't really prevent that without modification.

I don't know the official weight capacity.

I've had 2 dirt bikes in mine with gear. And 3 passengers in the cab (mom and her 2 daughters). Close to 600lbs in bikes.

If you have low profile tires, make sure they are aired up properly for the weight.

ok- I have beefy tires so it should be fine. Cant wait for all this snow to melt to be able to ride and see if the sportsman will fit.
