My dad and I did 6k worth of gravel in the back of his '01 Dodge (Cummins, ex cab, 4wd, dually). With dad and I in the truck it grossed 14.5k. It was squatting but was not near the bumpstops; wish I had taken pictures. You could tell it was back there. Of course it was on the overloads and even though it has the factory rear sway bar you could feel it lean some when changing direction.

The 5,500 kg is the gross loaded weight (truck and gravel).
The 3,300 kg is the TARE weight (unladed weight of the truck).
Yes, at the top of the receipt, he came in at 3300 Kg (7260#), and left at 5500Kg (12,100#) = 2200 Kg (4840#) load. He does this regularly to repair his farm access road/driveway. He's only 3100# over his 9000# GVWR
Yes that load of gravel looks to be every bit of 5000 lbs. Being a 4x4 that truck will sit way higher when empty, probably 5-6".
I inadvertently loaded 5200 lbs. in the bed of my truck in my sig. The dump bed insert weighs 1000 lbs and I had 4200 pounds of gravel in the bed. My payload of my empty truck though is almost 4000 pounds, since my truck is a 2wd regular cab with a gas engine. With the dump bed I can carry 2700 without exceeding any of my ratings, and it drives and handles like a dream with that weight. I also once had 2 full pallets of sod in the back. Don't know what it weighed but was pretty scary to drive.
