I gotta say, ALL of the big 3 have come a long way in the past 10 years..

I stopped on the way home tonight to look at the 2020 Lariat, 6.7, 4x4, Long Bed sitting at the local dealer ..

curb weight - 7490#
GVW - 12,400
listed payload on sticker - 4514
RAWR - 8300.. I may be wrong on that, but am pretty sure I saw that listed..

just for example, those numbers are a decent jump just from a 2015... payload is 1200# higher...GVW is 1,000# higher... curb weight is 1000# lighter...RAWR is about 1000 or 1200 higher...

They are ALL making it easier to justify a SRW with those numbers...

Pretty sure you are wrong on the GRAWR, 8,300# would require a tire rated at 4,150# each, 7,300# likely.

The payload is pretty impressive at 4,514, just would not want to be towing a 16,000# 5er on a SRW.

Russ, I may very well be completely wrong on that number...The tires were rated at 3750 ea, I am sure of that . ..thats 7500

I was impressed by the other numbers, gonna check out the Rams next...

I will say that my SRW has been nothing but rock solid, BUT I am only out on weekends in the summer and 1 trip at 2 weeks... IF and WHEN I start going more, it would be a DRW for sure, without thinking about it..

I am Just wasting time now, Christmas is over and I have no to do list on the Redwood, so I will waste my time looking at things I cant buy ! ! !

Just about all the weight of towing a 5th wheel goes on the TV Rear Axle. So 7300-4514 means the rear end would have to weigh in at 2786 to use that payload number. Probably not going to happen. All these high trailer towing numbers are hard to meet in the real world of towing.

You need to drive one to really get a feel for the changes, especially with the engine and new 10 speed transmission. It is very smooth and takes very little pedal to get it moving along smartly. It is as quiet a vehicle as I have ever been in. The transmission shifts at low speed were a little rough until it learned my driving habits, which took about 50 miles.

Mine has a payload of 4562, about 600 to 700 more than I need. My last 2 trucks have been duallies and I don't want another. This one will work for me until I decide to retire from the lifestyle. At my age that could be tomorrow or 10 years, who knows.

I find it interesting that the SRW diesel CC 4x4 long box has a 12400 lb gvwr where as the short box has 11500 lb gvwr. I wonder if the long box has different suspension?
