New F250 Iím looking at is rated 4800 front and 6340 rear. GVWR is 9900.
Iím looking to upgrade to a 5th wheel.
Why would the GVWR be so much less than the combined axle rating? In my way of thinking the axle rating should be the limit for load capacity.

Good question that I donít know the answer to either. It doesnít make sense at all and in my case, I can only add another 562 lbs on rear axle but I am limited to adding weight of 378 lbs to max out on GVW. I have never seen the axle ratings combined match the GVW of the truck.
For the poster with the F250, how much added stuff do you have in/on the truck to get your weight that high?

For licensing requirements, 10,000 lb. trucks are in a more expensive license class in many states.
