    Sounds about right except the tires. What tire sticker are you looking at?

    Tires should be rated between ~2300 and ~3500 lbs each depending on load range.

    Edit: I think the 1150 lbs is the trucks load capacity, 5600 gvw minus the wet weight of the truck. The "tire sticker" threw me off

    sorry; trying to give the best information i can glean.

    Q; if i take the GVW = 5600 & subtract 1150 load, i get 4450 #.

    my weight ticket says 4800 #.

    if i subtract 4450 from 4800, i get 350#

    Does this mean i am 350# UNDER-weight?

    just not sure how to interpret the numbers.

    this is all stemming from my rear springs being almost flat, and i am trying tp put the fix into perspective*

    * i know: take junk outta da back !

    Does anyone have a preferred tire pressure gauge they would recommend? Not looking for the most hard-core $25 kind; Average price that I’m seeing on Amazon right now is around 12 to 15 bucks. seems a little high, but always curious for something great.
    Thanks

    I'm no mathamatician (cant even spell it), but I think you are 350# over.

    If a load of 1,150 brings you to a max weight of 5,600, yes, 4,450 is your “empty” weight.

    You weighed in at 4,783, but that included a full tank of gas (120Lbs) you and a tool box and tools. You are 333 over empty weight with 120 lbs of gas bring you to 213 lbs over. The numbers sound spot on to me and if you, your toolbox and tools weigh 213 or more together, you’re under factory weight.

    I own Accugage gauges which did not make the above list, but features I like to have are: a flexible hose, angled chuck, bleed valve, rubber guard cause I drop everything, I don't like digital because I'm old, if it holds pressure until released that is good too since I'm also blind. Shoot, I didn't know they made handicap pressure gauges, but I guess they do.

    I've had mine for a few years and they have been great. Super easy to put on (a few seconds a wheel) and easy to take off with the tool (a few seconds a wheel) Keep the tool in your truck though.

    I've learned that my TPMS doesn't update immediately - you gotta roll around a bit and it catches up.

    When I'm airing up my own tires, the truck is off so TPMS doesn't do me any good anyway.

    I use a Motomaster gauge that is built right into the line.

    I have a Harbor Fright compressor and their basic hose set. Nothing fancy, and runs a nail gun pretty well too.

    as encouraging as i want this to sound, it's confusing to me. i get the 333 # over empty. wouldn't that get subtracted from 1150 #? then i seem to be 817 # Under GVW. (5600 - 4783 = 817) the 5600 is Toyota door sticker number/ the 1150 is Toyota door sticker number on the tire sticker.

    any question how i am confused???
