48,000 GVW with the 5500 Today

We'll this is the most I have put the new 5500 to the limits. I weighed in just shy of 48,000 pounds with the truck/trailer/load. That puts the load on the trailer around 26,000 +. I'm hauling from Phoenix to Sheridan, WY. So far the truck is doing pretty good up the mountains. Wonder how good it would do with an XRT giving it a little boost in power

I ran out of room I have the 40' trailer loaded with about 40' 2" worth of stuff. A 48' trailer would be real nice some days. Need bigger trailer all around especially on the axles. Poor 10K axles are getting worked extra hard.

Oops. I think I forgot to read that part. Heck my trailer empty weighs 9,000. That means I would only be able to haul my trailer and a Dodge 3500 CTD and I would be maxed out.
