5200 lbs.



I took this picture in downtown Charlotte, N.C. after picking up a load of concrete test cylinders -- total weigh of those was 5,200 pounds! The box-full was lowered down by overhead crane & I stacked all the rest I could fit in the bed around the box -- you don't see 'em, but they were in there! Now they're lining the shoreline @ the lake property I developed.


Truck's GVW rating is 8800 lbs. & the suspension was / still is stock -- not rated to carry that much -- but it did! I discovered that the rear suspension on the 2500HD is the same as on my friend's 3500 dual-rear-wheel truck -- 2 sets of leaf springs & the 2nd set doesn't even touch until you've got @ least 1500 lbs. in the bed.
