My CCLB with the Gasser has a payload rating of 2790 lbs.
I'm guessing you lost even more of your payload rating to your heavier engine and any extra interior options depending on your spec and GVWR. If you don't have the 10k GVWR package you lost even more payload rating to that.
Can you tell us the spec on your truck? Trim/options?
Thats a good observation. I figured that the only way that my truck could cary 3250 lbs is like you described. I do have a 10k GVWR so that helps for 100 lbs more. Even still the sticker says a 1939 lbs. payload and I only had half the weight when it was almost hitting the jounce bumpers.
