Question GVWR for 1 ton crew dually

Does anyone here have a truck like mine in my sig? I have 4.10's in the rear, it is 4wd. The reason I'm asking is my door sticker is all messed up and not readable. I spent a good half hour searching the forums but I really need to know my GVW and possibly axle weight ratings. I know my truck weighs 8100 lbs. with a tank of fuel, toolbox, and my fatass in the seat. I'm just getting annoyed of getting crap at the lumber yards when I load her up. 40 sheets of OSB doesn't even sit on the helpers. thanks everyone.

Pleeeeease........your truck will scoff at 3500#.

You might make sure tire pressure is up to the task though.

I know, I know, she will carry much more, just wanted to know legally for the anal criticizers that I seem to be running into lately. I always run my tires at maximum inflation in all my vehicles, who knows when the tires are going to be called upon. by the way, what is the stock tire size? I almost got pulled over a couple of days ago, got clocked at 79, cruise was set at 70. What should I enter in the smarty for height? Thanks guys appreciate the help.

You have 36" tires? They would have to be for your speedo to off that far.

You could have an independant shop that has a Snap-on scan tool recalibrate if you dodn't have a Smarty.

I reset pinion factor for pre 2006 trucks all the time with mine.

not sure what state your registered in but in my state its a misdeamor to destroy, remove, alter, cover, deface or counterfeit the GVWR/GAWR door tag.
If your a dot legal commercial hauler see this from FMCSA 390.5 regs :
390.5 Definitions

Question 3: If a vehicle's GVWR plate and/or VIN number are missing but its actual gross weight is 10,001 pounds or more, may an enforcement officer use the latter instead of GVWR to determine the applicability of the FMCSRs?

Guidance: Yes. The only apparent reason to remove the manufacturer's GVWR plate or VIN number is to make it impossible for roadside enforcement officers to determine the applicability of the FMCSRs, which have a GVWR threshold of 10,001 pounds. In order to frustrate willful evasion of safety regulations, an officer may therefore presume that a vehicle which does not have a manufacturer's GVWR plate and/or does not have a VIN number has a GVWR of 10,001 pounds or more if: (1) It has a size and configuration normally associated with vehicles that have a GVWR of 10,001 pounds or more; and (2) It has an actual gross weight of 10,001 pounds or more.

A motor carrier or driver may rebut the presumption by providing the enforcement officer the GVWR plate, the VIN number or other information of comparable reliability which demonstrates, or allows the officer to determine, that the GVWR of the vehicle is below the jurisdictional weight threshold.

If you haul real heavy the weak point on a dually is the wheels. They are rated at 2600#s. Best bet for safety and handling is go with 19.5s

You can also have any dealer (Dodge of course) run the vin and it will tell you what you truck is. Then simply go weigh the truck without the payload and you'll know what your capacity is. I just took my truck and trailer to the scale and weighed it to see what my max load was, $9 at the truck stop.
