Why would it have the same GVWR as mine (exactly)?
10,000 is for the new frame.

I was just quoting his 10,000 lbs he posted and then Dave_Monica said he had the wrong figures. Then later in his post Dave_Monica talked about his 10,000 GVWR. My GVWR is also 10,000 just like yours (exactly). Pretty clear now right

The label on the door states:

GVWR 9200 lbs
GAWR FRT 4860 lbs
GAWR RR 6084 lbs

I am not sure how much the truck weighs?

I should mention the truck is a 4x4, crew cab, short box.

He clearly stated it was 9200 pounds just like mine.
The trailer max he quoted was the Travel Trailer max with WD hitch.
The GCWR is correct also. Missing is the 15,200 pound 5th wheel max.

Like Dave and I said, a 2500HD will payload out well before he hits his GCWR or max trailer weight.
