I notice you drive a 3/4 ton truck and the 3/4 ton drivers are tho mos adament ones to defend exceeding manufacturers ratings. As a registered engineer, I will not knowlinly tell people to exceed a manfacturers rating.
The mission on irv2 has always been to provided useful information to members.
Commercial ratings ?? Your mistaking as Rusty brought up his version of commercial rating. The word commercial first came up in wingnut60 reply to my suggestion the OP contact his state size and weights folks.
While were pointing fingers why don't you contact your state size and weights folks for a better understanding of weight regulations concerning private and commercial. Both are one and the same for loads a truck may legally carry. You will also learn the state uses both GVWR and the GAWRs. Its really simple even for a engineer.
What I drive is irrevelent. I currently own a (wifes)1500/ (my)2500 and (our) older '96 3500 DRW truck. However that has zero to do with the subject.
