oops i weight 250 hope that will bring it closer.
Approximately 2/3 of your weight will be added to the steer axles, and 1/3 to the rear axle, so you will be adding ~ 165 lbs back to the front axle with you in the truck. That is still under the unloaded weight.
Take a broomstick along for the botton on your next weigh......those confounded buttons are too high for pickups.
IMHO Dave is correct.....you still more adjustment on the spring bars. I don't remember reading the GVWR of the truck, but without you in the truck your GVWR is 7180 lbs......many 1/2 ton pickups are in the 7000-7200 lb. range. You will need to unload some items in the truck bed.....maybe put some things in the camper ??
