Payload ratings and tongue weight ratings are always different.
Your payload rating is for anything added to the truck. Like passengers, camping gear and the trailers tongue weight.
The receiver rating is usually stamped on the receiver and has two different ratings.
One for no WDH and one using a WDH.
Ram for some reason doesn't list it on their receivers. But IIRC it's listed in the manual. It's not on my 12 2500 receiver either.
BTW all truck payload ratings should be used. Not for calculating what the receiver can handle, but for what the truck can handle.

I had two values. The one stamped on the class IV hitch was 1000lbs which is what seems class IV hitches are rated at? Then the value written on the door panel said 920lbs tongue weight.
Does any of the payload count against the tongue weight?
