Combined weight ratings?
Ok, for any of you heavy haulers out there that have to worry about DOT and registered weight...I'm trying to figure out what the actual gross combined weight rating is for my truck.
08 F350 CC LB DRW 4x4, 4:10 gears
My confusion is in looking at the manufacturers specs, they say max GCWR is 23500, but the max towing weight is 16000. Given that the truck weighs 9300 empty, the max trailer weight would be only 14200. What number should I go off? I have to by my registration each year based on my max GCWR and I don't want to short myself hauling capacity nor do I want to pay for weight I can't legally haul.
Any help would be appreciated. Trying to stay legal with all the different rules/laws is a serious pain.
