Where is this ficticious 20% leeway rule written. I've bought several new trucks over the years. None of them ever stated a gross weight minus 20% on the weight sticker on the door post. This is the dumbest thing I ever heard. Does that mean that my Gross weight is 13,200# minus 20%...I don't think so. If it says 13,200# that's what the Engineers designed it to haul and that's what i feel safe piling on....I see no reason not to haul a 36CKTS with anything that has the load capacity to do the job, whether that's a 3/4, 1 ton single rear wheel or dually. If the truck manufacturer says it's good, it's good.....
