Being a neophyte with trucks- it's more about learning what they can
do. A little over loaded; a lot overloaded; under the posted ratings- it all helps me learn as I go. For me, knowing your pin weight is only 1/2 of the information. I can tell my server guys at work that I need a new drive because mine is at 800 gigabytes full- but that doesn't tell them if I'm 100% full, 80% full or even just 40% full.
In Florida, you asked me something about your truck and I responded with "I learned my lesson." or something to that effect. I still don't think exceeding ratings is for everyone, but folks like you, dustman, or ChooChoo- I do believe it can be done safely. My real question now starts to form, how much is OK? Or what signs do you look for when something is overloaded that you may be coming into the danger zone
As for the yellow sticker- this is specific to your truck. You telling me is a lot quicker than me finding it. 2 seconds vs. however long it takes me.
As I said, just a curiosity. I know you travel all around without issue; that's never been the question. I simply am curious. (Same as I was curious with BamaBob's numbers or helped another member find his.)
