Can anyone tell me exactly where to look for my ratings and what all numbers to look for??

So far I see
Gvwr of 7100

Gawr
Front 4000
Rear 4150

Combined cargo weight not to exceeds 1470

What else am I looking for??

Thanks
Caleb

those #'s you posted look good but you need to know the weight of your truck is as it sits today,not what your registration says-and you also need to know what your trailer weighs loaded ready to tow/actual tongue weight-that will determine what your actual payload # will be.with all the extra stuff you have added to the truck you will definitely have a lower available payload #.(the more your trucks weighs the lower your available payload will be) your payload limit will most likely be over way before you ever come close to the 16,000 lbs max tow limit. without knowing the actual weight of your truck you have no idea how heavy your are. correct me if I'm wrong but to get your payload # you subtract the actual weight of the truck from the GVWR to get your payload #?
FYI my truck weighs 6,250lbs not 5,400lbs that the registration states=lower available payload #

Go weigh your truck. Then minus the sticker gross weight = payload (cargo + passenger, fuel etc).

You planning a trip to the quarry or a trip of any sort? I’ve never worried about this kinds of details. I just load up and go!

So the gross combined weight is 16000?? Is that posted somewhere?


And no trip to the quarry, just trips to the local campground with about 38 feet of travel trailer.

Its in the towing section of my owners manual-specific to model code and its different depending on if you have tow package or not,bed length,engine size etc but the GCWR is a joke its almost like that # is made up cause it does not really mean anything.

To meet the maximum towing cap, you really have to have a trailer set up properly as 99.9% of the time half ton trucks run out of hitch weight wayyyy before they run out of actual trailer capacity.

Make it easy. 5.7 can tow 12k, 4.6 can tow 8.5k

Those are my number and I’m sure it’s ball park. Like I say, I just hitch up and go regardless. If I’m towing something heavier than 12k, say 25k combined, the 7.3 comes handy.

To be honest, the 5.7 isn’t no punk - pretty much towed anything you hook it up to. Just needs better mpg and duallies when doing it.
