    Have read a post earlier with mention of a calculation that determines capability of Axle in regards to weight. Looks like you take frnt GAWR and rr GAWR and GVWR to determine. Could someone clarify this calc.

    If you still have your owners manual, check out page 4-64 and up. It has all the info you need for calculating axle reserve capacity. :nod:
