I don't know where John gets his information. Maybe a Dodge is weaker, but my F350 towing capacity is rated at 21500 if I remember correctly. Which i regularly violate by as much as 14000#.

From the Ram Trucks web site.

Is it they are weaker trucks.
Is it dodge has them rated (GCVW) at 26,000 to get under the CDL laws even for the 5500 when your Ford F350 has a GCVW in the 30's.
Is it I am reading something wrong.

He is looking at spending close to $40,000 on a truck of this size.
Giving him good advise includes knowing answers to all the above; and for what; where; and how often he will use this truck.

We talk everyday on this site about how the DOT is cracking down on one ton trucks. This thread is a perfect example why they are.

This caught my eye, are the new F350's up into CDL land now?

Yes the ones with dual rear wheels are.
With the correct engine; rear end and cab style you can get 30,000 lb GCWR and pull a 5th wheel trailer up to 22700 lbs.

That's what I thought, but it seems like a cruel twist by the mfg's ! I'll bet many of the people buying them have no idea that they could be in trouble for not having a CDL.
