NCeagle Posted August 31, 2020 Share Posted August 31, 2020 I just ordered a 62 gallon fuel tank for my tow vehicle from S&B. Stock size is only 26 gallons, so this is quite the upgrade - and a necessity in my mind even though another 252 lbs of payload goes poof. After this tank upgrade, my curb weight will have increased by about 750 pounds over the years, reducing my payload from 2273 (stock) to 1523 pounds. Additions include the fuel tank upgrade (+252 lbs), full size fiberglass camper top (+300 lbs), HD steering and suspension (+120 lbs) and other smaller items accounting for the rest of the weight. Before I pulled the trigger I weighed everything that I typically camp and fix things (tools) with (276 lbs) and other things that we have bought for the Oliver (655 lbs). Luckily we are still under GVWR hauling everything to Hohenwald (by 272 lbs). Coming back we should be ok too since we'll unload 655 lbs of stuff and add the tongue weight which I'm assuming around 650 lbs. 2020 Elite II, Hull 688 --- 2021 Silverado 2500HD, 6.6L Duramax Diesel Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
