Re: Axle Capacity?
I know your concern, Yhe wife an I have a 1997 F-350 SRW 4x4 we pull a 40foot 4 horse with 14 foot Living quarter horse trailer. 1000 pounds over what the door sticker says we should I think it's 6048 an we are at something like 7100 pounds on rear axle loaded with fuel,water,horses,kids,food. I am thinking of going with the rickson wheels also. don't really want to put adapters on cause I think that inch or so extra could put undo stress on the axle.I hate to think what the original tires do when you go around or hit a pothole. let me know if you get the rickson wheels.
