    Yeah....but you got it....that's all that matters to them. When your truck crashes if you over load it...Not their "fault"


    Hope the sticker install doesn't take too long!!

    I'm surprised they haven't included ALL vehicles they ever built starting in 05?? Why just the 09+ models? :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    What's even more ridiculous is that they are just giving another useless loophole sticker instead of doing anything to fix the reason the sticker was there to begin with. Fuck them.

    Consequence: INCORRECT LOAD CARRYING CAPACITY MODIFICATION LABELS COULD RESULT IN THE VEHICLE BEING OVERLOADED, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.



    How about INCORRECT LAME FUCKING PARTS COULD RESULT IN THE VEHICLE CRASHING? What a sad, bad, lick my nad joke.

    If they had a f*ckin brain, they would include the 4 leaf spring with the towing package....at added cost, of course, to the consumer who wants the extra load carrying ability. They would(should) probably have to drop the towing capacity of the regular truck to 5,000 lbs.
