Gvwr and trailering

I am trying to see if i am gonna be over payload by a mile and trying to understand all this number stuff. Diff between a 2500 n 3500 are only suspension and rear axles.

2015 silverado 6.0 crew cab
Payload sticker 26xx
Gvwr 9500
Gawr rear 6200
Tires 3195 each

Trailer tt tongue weight approx 1200
Golf cart 1000
Passengers and some cargo 800

Truck has airlift 5000
Same brakes as 3500
I could put the approx. extra 200lbs cargo in the trailer.
I need new tires so gonna go to a 124 load rating tire.


Thx
Drew

If i take my gvwr minus my curb weight it comes out to 3850. But my payload is 26xx. This is where i am confused.

No way a 2500 truck is going to weigh 5,650 lbs. Weigh it to get the real number then subtract it from 9500. I weighed mine the day I bought it and it was 6600 lbs.

I think we addressed this in the other thread.. He is using the numbers he made up when he registered his truck in NY. Not real numbers, just numbers he came up with to avoid a commercial plate for being over 6k lbs. It was recommended to either use the 2600... or see a scale.

Somewhere you made a math error with your gvwr minus curb weight.


So lets take the 2600 payload number and subtract that from 9500. The answer is 6900lbs...that is how much your truck weighed when it left the assembly line. Anything the dealer added (running boards/bed liner/bed mat/undercoating/etc) and everything you added (airlift 5000/hitch/bed cover/bed rack/cup holder/bag of chips/humans) gets subtracted from the 26xx number or added to your trucks weight of 6900lbs...until you reach 9500gvwr. -There is no chance the 3000lbs (total from your list) added to your truck does not exceed your 9500gvwr.

The payload sticker on your truck (26xx) is your max cargo or max weight that can added. That amount will take you up to your truck's maximum gvwr of 9500lbs and no comparisons between 2500 and 3500 series trucks relating to axles, brakes or whatever is relevant on deciding if you are overweight. Using that comparison to make a weak justification in your mind for being over is another topic.

The curb weight is the number i was using based off of my reg from when the dealer registered the vehicle at time of purchase. I researched the part numbers for the differences between a 2500 and 3500. Those were the only different parts based off of part numbers. Its not a justification just wanting to understand why the 3500 has higher payload if its just the springs and axle. Thanks for your time. My answer was already answered in another post.
