HILARIOUS!

Yes, weights and tow and curb weight and GVWR can be as confusing as when my wife says, "nothing" is wrong when she's not talking to me!! (But I've learned that when she says we need to talk I'd best just sit down and listen!!!) :-)

As an engineer, there's rarely a cut-and-dry answer to most things...."it depends" answers a lot of questions concerning weight, what tires are "best", tow stuff, etc.

Hey, I should use that when my wife tells me we "need to talk"....maybe I'll answer, "it depends"

(Then run!!)

I going to put helper springs on it and that adds 1000 lbs of pay load so that is 4,000 payload
I going add Air bags and box says 5000lbs so now I'm at payload of 9,000 lbs
I going to put Rancho Adjustable shocks on the give another 1000lbs so 10,000 Payload
I give another 1000lbs just because the Ford underrates their Eco Boost and get a tune which will give it 1000 lbs of torque.
My buddy and dealer told me I would fine but if was unhappy he knew where there is a wreck Ford duel wheel and we swap the rear end since just bolts in then the sky is the limit. Plus I can tow in 80 mile cross winds.

Since I have 5000lbs air bags I should be able to 5000lbs of air in them to get the truck level
Here is the picture of 5er I 'm looking at.
Sorry. Not as funny!!

You mean they had GVWR stickers on wagons???? The Lone Ranger wrote the tickets for being overloaded, too, I guess.
