    Hi steffen707,
    We have checked with our internal resources and after conducting additional testing, Jeep engineering has confirmed that up to 500 lbs payload can be carried in the bed with the tailgate in the mid position. This payload rating is dependent on the sheet cargo being properly supported with 2x4s positioned in the bed as specified by the owner's manual. Future printings of the owner's manual will show the new 500 lbs payload. I hope this offers some clarification!
