Thank you guys for all of your comments, well today was pick up and I started putting my stuff that I had in my 2017 2500 into my new 3500, but you know I'm loving it because my payload is 3800 lbs.

Great looking truck. Now take'r down to the local scale house and get a scale ticket for front and rear axles. That way you will know the trucks actual in the bed payload.
I see more and more 350/3500 srw trucks doing transport work and commercial hauling work running the interstates around here.

Personally I would have the truck LOADED with hitch, cargo passengers etc then get the axles weighed.
