    The nitto Terra grappler in 295/60/20 also is 4080 and more of an AT instead of a MT tire.

    Remember, axle ratings on single rear wheel is #7000. That is on a '16 F-350

    Yes, with the right tires and skill driving, you can go higher, BUT, once the ratings are exceeded, you are at risk legally, and most insurance will not cover the problem.

    When I was younger, I routinely hauled over the ratings on nearly everything I have owned, but I am older and I hope wiser now, so I don't admit to doing things like that anymore.😉

    I'm just throwing it out there as a reminder of the risks when things go wrong.

    Also, on the tire capacity, if you are within about 20% of the ratings, you are pushing it. Once near capacity, tires will start to sway and cause real problems, and speed makes it worse.
    If you are pushing the limit, slow down, and make frequent stops to check tire and bearing temperatures.

    Stay safe👍

    Yep. Same on my 16 Ram 3500.

    It can be a problem when hauling a camper and towing a bumper pull trailer. Even with EQ bars on the trailer I am at 8000# on the rear axle.

    My next truck will be a DRW just for the peace of mind on long trips.

    Thank you! Yes, the 18’ Ram is the same. From your experience, is there an approximate ratio you use for tongue weight running a gooseneck or does it all depend on the trailer and how the load is distributed?

    I mostly try to load based on the axle weight, as long as I can.

    Load the drive axle, but not overload it.

    Numbers for the new 2019 Ram 3500 came out today...

    400 HP and 1000 TQ. 7,630# payload and 35,100# towing capacity!

    That should do it!

    Well, there you go! That’s massive, but I’d really hate to go DRW for a daily driver.

    Gooseneck is 25' with 9' camper on it.
    The other is a 22', don't hardly use this for the Jeep anymore.

    2018 was 385/930.

    My 2016 is 385/900.

    So a small bump in both.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
