I have put 3000 lbs in mine and it wasn't on the stops and towed great.I dont think you can really put more than 2k in one stock. Ive loaded my 105 with an insane amount of weight. Ill load mine up and weigh it and see where the tires go.
The problem with that load was the balancing the center of mass was on the tailgate, bad loading. The center of mass should always be over or slightly forward of the axle. They will handle more than 3000 lbs but it is not good for it.Ok the heaviest load I hauled was a stack of lumber 16 feet long. The tail was wagging the dog like crazy. I couldnt go over 25mph. Ok good to know it will handle 3k.
The axle on my 1101 has a rating plate on it indicating a max load of 4200lbs while the trailer plate shows 3400lbs.I see a consensus that they are the same. It would be interesting to see inside the axle. Only a few inches would change the rating and it's in a spot that cannot be seen. I wonder if the manufacturer says they are the same. I understand the reasoning, re the tow vehicle authorization.
The plate on mine is painted over and I can't scrape it off. Glad to hear the 1101 has a higher rating, I'm putting a Geithner S788 shelter on mine and mounting tubes under it, making it longer on both ends for a camper build. It might get heavy.The axle on my 1101 has a rating plate on it indicating a max load of 4200lbs while the trailer plate shows 3400lbs.
I like what you've done!!Yes just temporaily Im not using it like that. I will drill all the way through and bolt through frame rail before i use it. It would probably be fine the way it is. I just want it as strong or stronger than factory. I just wanted to make sure tires didnt rub. There is still 2 inches inside wheel well.
