Payload is 4,480 lbs. Camper weighs 3017 "wet" as weighed from the factory, so once loaded up we should be right at or just under GVWR. Surprised that the 68RFE has a higher payload and tow arting than the Aisin.

Also interesting how the GVWR magically jumps up 900 lbs with the Cummins to keep the payload ratings the same.

Actually the payload number on the chart is for a basic truck. The tag in the door jam will have the payload for your actual truck. probably 4k +/-. Chris

Congratulations, it's a step in the right direction, but you need to try harder next time to go all the way to Ford. [emoticon] Good looking truck.

Nice looking truck. No need to fear the diesel in general.
All 3 have them fairly well sorted out at this point.
I expect to see that thing at Hershey Park some day.

Congratulations! You’re going to love it!

I’m sure it will be tough to let the Burb go, though. We love the 2001 Yukon we bought to tow our boat.

If you don't mind what was the out the door cost? My 05 is getting long in the tooth and needs a baby brother. Everything I look at in the pre 11 model year has too many miles on it. Don't be embarrassed if you think you paid too much. When you are hunting unicorns price is immaterial. Or you could just tell a fib [emoticon]

It kind of looks like you have a new driveway to park it on. Good looking truck!

Don't you have a longbed? The 4,480 rating is for the shortbed. I think you might have more payload, at least according to that chart.

Also, I think the GVWR shows that the weakest link in that entire system is the gas engine, not the frame, wheels, tires, brakes, suspension, etc. Everything else is the same, but the CTD is rated for more weight.

Or one could be polite and not ask "What'd it cost ya?"

It's in poor taste, even on the internet...
