I have been prepping my 2015 megacab 2500 to tow a vengeance 377v we just ordered. Has been regeared with 4.56, hellwig air bags and a bullydog programmer. With a pin weight of 2500#s of the 377v, it's 500# over but I'm not worried.

Loaded up, I bet you will be more than 1500 over...

What's a mega weigh?
My CCSB 2500 was 7919. Without me in it.

Mega weighs 8006#s. GAWR for the rear is 6500 and my rear tires combined is 7716. The airbags are rated up to 5000#. Its wireless control so I can adjust accordingly on the fly. Not saying I will load her up to it, I think I'll be okay.

X2 - At least 1500 if not more. Dry pin at 20% I bet loaded the pin jumps up a couple of percentage points when loaded ready to go.

Remember that those number are static weights. Hitting a small dip in road or going down hill pin weights can increase by 30% to 40%.

Roger I'll that in mind. I'll air up the bags more if I need too. Pretty sure I'll be fine though.
