And seems like they change yearly, but last I looked a 3500 had GVWR of 11000 or 11500.
Also seems like most people now are saying pin weight is 3000 or more, depending on rig. That would probably be WAY over for a 2500.
Our measured pin weight on two month trip was 3500lbs. With all of the storage up front, it adds up quickly.
