You have to get the weight of the trailer and subtract that from the gvwr. That will tell your total load capcity.

Too much for your 4500. its got 2 10k axles so to get to the 25900 gvw they are relying in 6k of tongue weight. Plus your are REALLY pushing the limits of the dmax/ally, heck the gcwr is 26k. That trailer is more suited to a heavier type truck (6500 type).

Even funnier is there Mini 5 which wants 9k pin weight and they show 3500 hooked up. Here is how the explain the gvwr....25,000 lb. (16,000 lb. axle load / 9,000 hitch) Empty Weight 7,900 w/Spare - Load Capacity 17,100
