I've been asking this question for over a year and have not heard an
explanation that makes sense except perhaps that the mega with short bed is
going to have the pin further back than a long bed quad and dodge derates
the GVWR to compensate. These trucks are otherwise identical with
identical specs when equiped the same, save the 200 pounds additional mega
curb weight over the QC long bed. A couple inches is cut off the mega frame
I find it odd that the rear axle can handle an additional 6,000 lbs but you
hit the GVWR by loading 2,675 lbs on it. With only 249 lbs available to the
front axle I can see why they don't want a plow on this model. You will
likely be over the front axle rating just by putting 4 adults in the cab
before you even hook the trailer.
Maybe it's the Front AWR. If the Mega Cab puts more weight on the front
axle, they may have reduced the GVWR to compensate, while maintaining the
GCWR since the trailer would only add it's weight to the rear axle. I hope
you post the reason once you get and answer.
He's about 2 years old, I've had him for a few months. I don't think he was
walked much and maybe even beaten. He's come a looong way since I got him.
He used to mask his fear of *everything* by using aggression. Now it's only
when we meet other dogs on a walk that he gets aggressive - he now does fine
with people, cars, bits of wood, leaves, etc.
