GAWR + GAWR = GVWR ?
I recently had some issues re-titling and registering my truck and decided to take a look on the door jamb sticker for the manufacturers weight rating of the vehicle. I had no trouble increasing the registered weight to 10K. In NJ, the appropriate weight class is defined as 9-10K. Truck is in sig.
The following is on the sticker:
Front axle GAWR = 5200#
Rear axle GAWR = 6830#
GVWR = 9900#
What I don't understand is the math. This is not how I was taught to do arithmetic when I was in school. Can someone shed some light on this?
