In any case, work the numbers backwards from payload and more than likely all the other values (GCWR, GVWR etc) will all be well under the max.

Don't know c4s but this is an example of what I mean you guys are talking about GVWR that has to do with the truck itself NOT towing. My Ram has max payload of 985lbs, it's tow rating is 9600.

Don't think people would be buying 50K pickups if they could only tow 1300lbs.
