Man, isn’t that redundant? The owner’s manual normally spells out how payload is calculated and the real issue is given the average male weighs just a tick under 200 pounds and the average female comes in at just under 170 pounds, the whole thing is strange. So where does that leave you?

Wife and I take the truck with a full tank of gas and weigh. Then we load the way we travel and weigh again. Anything else is hit or miss in my opinion. Wonder if most folks know how easy it is to weigh at a truck stop? That way we have an actual weight to compare to our axles, tires, and even our GW.
