    Anyone? Gross Combined Vehicle Weight Rating (for the uninitiated) or GCWR or whatever. I think it should be in the owner's manual but I don't have access to one.

    The GVW for your 91 is 6100lbs. and the payload rating is 1593lbs.

    That figure is the maximum the truck can weigh. 75 was 6200. The combined is with a trailer. I think that is like 9.5k so with empty truck it allows for a 4.5k Trailer.

    9.5k... oops, i guess mine was a little overloaded when i drove it down from mt to ca. i drove it across the scales with the uhaul trailer loaded up and it spit out 11,600# and that is without me in it! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    it was a pretty sluggish on the mountains, but it could still do 65 on flat ground.

    try that with a lifted jeep... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif
