My yellow sticker also states 25,762 lbs dry weight and 1,344 allowed for occupants and cargo.
jegstrup, you also mentioned that your tires will only do 5,600 lbs. You need to consider what your tires will support and what your chassis will support.
For Michelin 255/80R225 XRV tires:
Steer axle tire maximum is 5205 lbs @ 110 psi.
A rear axle tire is derated to 4805 lbs at 110 psi.
So the XRV's will support 10,410 lbs front and 19,220 lbs rear.
For Michelin 275/80R225 ZXE2 tires:
Steer axle tire maximum is 6175 lbs @ 110 psi.
A rear axle tire is derated to 5675 lbs at 110 psi.
So the ZXE2 will support 12,350 lbs front and 22,700 lbs rear.
Now for the chassis.
340hp: GAWR(F) 10,410, GAWR(R) 17,500, GVWR 27,910
360hp: GAWR(F) 10,410, GAWR(R) 19,000, GVWR 29,410
Now if your unit had the steer axle upgrade, add 1,590 lbs
jegstrup, as I started this post I gave you my original sticker; much like yours. However, I had the tires and steer axle upgrade. To carry anything you need this upgrade. Note that when the tires are changed, the speedometer needs to be recalibrated.
One last point, I have compared the Bill of Materials of the -40 and -60 rear axle air bags and brakes and found them the same. I typically run at 18,000 lbs on the rear axle. - Hank
