Another weight question

Can anyone shed some light on this? I have a 2014 390 60 RB. Fully loaded I am 11,600 front and 18,400 rear. I can not fiid the spec's for my weight with 275 22.5 tires and the 3000 Allison. My toad would add another 3800 lbs. I understand the tire pressure setting. I am trying to figure if I am overweight.

You MAY be over on the front axle unless they installed the heavier airbags. With proper tires and proper airbags, I think the front axle gross is 12K lbs, otherwise 10.5K lbs.

A couple of years ago, FR built quite a few 390RB 40's that had to be retro-fitted at the factory for bigger tires and airbags. I had one of those and had to go to Elk.

Worth checking to be sure.

Boowho??

I was told with the 2014 chassis for the 390 60 the front axle was 12K.

Yes the front axle should be 12000 and the rear axle 19000 on a -60 and 3000 trans and 275/70/22.5
Looks like you are a under limits for your rig. Which is the same model as mine.

The Gross Combined Weight Rating I have read is about 39000 so you should be good on your toad also.

Dan is absolutely correct. You have plenty of capacity. For the most part if you have 275 tires you do not have the 12000 lb steer axle. All the 360 hp With a 3000 transmission have a 39000 GCVW
Anyone with a 2008-2012 with 255 tires should get weighed.
