I have 2200 lbs under the gcwr of the 2 combined that is the 15k number.
The 600# sounds a bit light.
I'd suggest reading this post and visiting a CAT Scale.http://http://www.jaycoowners.com/fo...v-tt-3871.html
IMHO the GCWR and max tow weight don't tell you much and you will exceed the Rear GAWR before reaching either of those weights.
The scale is the only way to know if you are safely loaded. Adding suspension "helpers" will not increase the axle's load capacity.
The CAT Scale is your friend.
