    i was quick matching on boss's website, it going to be the truck in my sig rc lb 2500. says i cant put a 9'2 power v on it. but if i put the same truck in, i mean everything except put 3500 i can put it on the 3500. they both have a 4250 gvwr axle on the front. wtf is up with that?

    GFAWR isn't the only thing factored in. Total GVWR is also taken into account and a 3500 of course has a higher GVWR than a 2500. So a 9.2 can be too much when "playing by the rules".

    9200 was the max for a SRW back then if I recall correctly.

    I believe you are correct. Newer GM 2500 is 9200, and a 3500 is 9600...I think!

    The newer (GMT800-900) 3500 SRW's are 9900, but you were close. :waving:
