Steve,

Did you read post number 2?
It sums up the issues towing with that tire at 40 PSI.

True enough!! Payload in truck door 1267, add bedliner, tonneau cover, side steps, fuel, 4 "good sized"people, probably maxed the payload.
Here's a fun thing to do after dinner with a truck full of buffet fed people, go to the truck scales and find out! Lolol

Then everyone go to the bathroom and go back to the scales again. I'll have to put that one on my 'to do list"

I also think the same can be said for the 3/4 ton trucks and the 1 ton trucks too. These people with bigger trucks buy bigger campers. It's all relative.
I am in the same situation as Rugged,and also agree that even though I am maxing the truck on paper,it seems to be handling it quite well.
