Tundras are great - wish they’d get into the 3/4 and 1 ton market. Their payload sucks too. I upgraded from a 2019 tundra to an F350ccsb 6.7L.

Sorry I’m still confused.

Weigh the truck loaded up - then you said that is the weight on the rear axle. The truck weighs let’s say 7900#. This already doesn’t make sense.
