That’s good that you’re going with a lightweight FWC pop-up. With a payload rating that low I assume you have coil springs on the rear axle of your Ram 1500. Based on that assumption, I would go with SumoSprings or air bags to keep your rig level. Load range D tires and upgraded wheels would also be the minimum with that setup. Not sure the weight rating for the Ram 1500 rear axle, but most axles have lots of unused capacity. The wheels and tires are always the weak link when it comes to the official GAWR ratings for the front and rear axles. For more information on this important topic, check out this article…
