What the criteria is on the "yellow sticker" weight would be the key issue. If the carrying capacity is based on a full 100 gallon fuel tank and two 150 pound humans, then that would give us a bit of wiggle room on the rig. I wasn't aware of the inclusion of fuel as my understanding is that the weight is based on a dry weight. Would a full water tank also count into the sticker weight?
I know most gassers are close to being overloaded when they leave the factory, so it is a concern also for the diesels. The power issue is not one that concerns me as much as the safety issue.
