I gotta say, ALL of the big 3 have come a long way in the past 10 years..

I stopped on the way home tonight to look at the 2020 Lariat, 6.7, 4x4, Long Bed sitting at the local dealer ..

curb weight - 7490#
GVW - 12,400
listed payload on sticker - 4514
RAWR - 8300.. I may be wrong on that, but am pretty sure I saw that listed..

just for example, those numbers are a decent jump just from a 2015... payload is 1200# higher...GVW is 1,000# higher... curb weight is 1000# lighter...RAWR is about 1000 or 1200 higher...

They are ALL making it easier to justify a SRW with those numbers...


Pretty sure you are wrong on the GRAWR, 8,300# would require a tire rated at 4,150# each, 7,300# likely.


Russ, I may very well be completely wrong on that number...The tires were rated at 3750 ea, I am sure of that . ..thats 7500

I was impressed by the other numbers, gonna check out the Rams next...

I will say that my SRW has been nothing but rock solid, BUT I am only out on weekends in the summer and 1 trip at 2 weeks... IF and WHEN I start going more, it would be a DRW for sure, without thinking about it..

I am Just wasting time now, Christmas is over and I have no to do list on the Redwood, so I will waste my time looking at things I cant buy ! ! !


Just about all the weight of towing a 5th wheel goes on the TV Rear Axle. So 7300-4514 means the rear end would have to weigh in at 2786 to use that payload number. Probably not going to happen. All these high trailer towing numbers are hard to meet in the real world of towing.

Well about 1/3 to 1/2 of the weight of the cab passengers and stuff, will go to the front axle, but even at that we are getting to the point where one can be within GVWR, but exceed rear axle and possibly tire rating.
With our 2001 Ram 2500, I was 1,700# over GVWR, but still within both axle ratings.

Russ,

on my 2015, I am over my GVW, just at my RAWR, and just under my 3750# rated tires. The RAWR on the 2020 is confirmed at 7230 which is only 130# higher..

The weak links on these truck is still the tires and RAWR..

Which is why (like FTG) as much as I loved my '15 F350 SRW, we ended up going w/ a '17 F350 DRW due to this rational when we decided to go to FL for vaykay in Aug . A lil too much weight on tires bothered me to no end going that distance and heat etc. I knew the rest of the truck could take everything but didn't like the tire aspect. Love the DRW for towing any good amount of long distance, but if I had my way, would still rather have a SRW for everyday driving and towing. This cowboy doesn't make that much $$$.

My short box crew cab has an unladen rear axle weight of 3470 lbs with only the driver in the cab. The rear spring rating is 7230 on short and long box trucks (2017 to 2020) so a pin weight of about 3800 lbs is about the limit of the rear axle.
Front axle rating rating is 5600 and my unloaded truck is at 4750 lbs (including driver and fuel)

So with a 3700 lb pin plus driver and passenger my truck would be very close to 12070 lbs with the rear axle loaded to its rated maximum weight. I suppose a lighter pin and more passengers would get a little closer to a 12,400 gvw.

It just so happens I just got off the Ford and Ram website looking at the brochures on their HD offerings. I am really impressed with both. I haven't owned/worked a diesel truck in a few years. I might be in the "need" for one soon for commercial work and looking at what they offer now. My preference on paper would be Ford because of the 10 spd transmission and the fact they build both their engine and transmission and their styling.
