ok thanks fellas. This is probably a dumb question, but what can I tow legally for weight with this truck? I ask because i'm getting my new trailer registered and I know what that can be done at, but then i got wondering what weight my truck is actually allowed to haul. I have a Reese 14k gooseneck hitch

You should have a combined wieght limit of 20k by the manufacturer. I am not sure how the individual states look at that though. some might be less but i dont think any would be more than that, legally. I believe Mike posted a list here somewhere showing individual state limits.

My truck QCSB 2000 3/4 ton with helpers weighs in at 8,800 lbs with a full tank... Though, that scale may be a bit off as that really seems heavy.

I was asking all of these questions because if i register my trailer for hauling under 10000lbs I get a 2 year inspection and its about $30 cheaper. I decided to register it for the max instead( 1 year ins) simply because the trailer weighing in at 3800lbs if I want to put a truck or anything on it i'd be over the 10000lbs. This way i'm safe if i get into an accident because you know that's the first thig they would do, weigh my load and try to blame me by being over what I was allowed. Thanks guys
