I was thinking something similar on my 2012 GMC Sierra 1500. The yellow sticker said 1474 for occupants and cargo. Just about every other Sierra 1500 I heard about was higher than that (granted, I never looked at other door pillars or contacted GM about it). I traded that truck on a RAM 2500 and never worried about it again, but that always stuck in the back of my mind as odd.

Aside from solving the mystery of the number on the sticker, the true number is the GVWR minus the scale weight gives you your remaining payload capacity.

I tend to believe that is correct too. As long as the individual axle weights are respected. I just want to make sure there is no other limit that Im missing. I waiting for an answer from the technical department at Jeep as to how the come up with 1050. In the mean time I think Ill start another thread to see what number other Grand Cherokee owners have.
