Well I purchased my 2011 2500 CCLB a few months ago, and I finally got it weighed this weekend. I was surprised how much it weighed (7940 with a full tank and me in it). This got me thinking about some of the weight ratings thought. With a GVWR of 10,000#, this only leaves a little over 2000# assuming I dont have any other passengers with me. GM says the max gooseneck/FW capacity is 15,600# for this model. Assuming a 15% pin weight, this alone would put me over the GVWR (10,280#), and thats with no passengers! Also, my rear axle weight was 3140# and the RAWR is 6200. This tells me that my rear axle can handle an additional 3060#, but that puts me way over the GVWR! Is the GVWR a BS number that GM understated in order to keep the 2500 out of the "commercial truck" category, when in reality the truck can handle much more than 10,000# GVWR? Or is there a flaw in my logic somewhere? Thanks in advance!
