You're probably looking at about 13,000lbs. As always, with any big trailers make sure you have the weight distribution relatively even and have working trailer brakes.

245

my 2002 has a gross combined rating of 18000lbs and I use all of it and I actually run my plate 2" behind the axle. the truck is very nose heavy anyways. they say if you run ahead of center your actually over your front axle max specs with the diesel .
