That is sooo long overdue. I've said for years that the GVW and GCWR are merely established by the manufacturer to insure their product outlasts the warranty.

Will a new F150 tow 10,000 lb or do you need two trucks?
I must have the wrong truck GCWR 14,000 lb - 6,000 lb truck = 8,000 lb may be I need a Ford.

Don't you know it is the "fully boxed frame" that makes all the difference. Forget the engine or transmission. As long as the hitch holds, it is all good. As long as the tranny holds till the warranty is up, what do they care. LOL
