Just my opinion, but I wouldn't worry at being a few hundred lbs. over GVWR on a 2500HD Duramax. I know many people will agree and disagree with that statement for a number of reasons.

True, I wouldn't loose too much sleep at this point, but I would not intentionally add to the overage by adding an auxillary fuel tank

I'm not to concerned. If I run the water tanks mt I'm actually under. I know that airbags don't change your GVWR but they should take any stress off the frame? The main concern was running into the province of BC up here as they have really tighten up on the overweight's.

I guess I was wrong about chances slim to none Herk. Note the pic. A new 3500HD in the driveway now. 11,500 GVW fits the bill.
