I mean the trooper can't write a ticket unless it's a law on the books. I can't find a law on the books in any state that says that these stickers are legal numbers.
But thanks again.
The only possible thing I can think of is a denial of a warranty claim if your truck damage was due to an (proven) overloaded condition.
As an aside, the ONLY difference between my 2010 ram 2500 and a 2010 ram 3500 SRW is the rear spring pack.
The frames, axles, brakes, engine, transmission are all the same.
The 2500 has a max payload of 2270#. The tow rating maxs out at 12,500 with a diesel, auto trans, and a 3.73 rear end.
With only a change in the rear spring pack, the 3500 has a max payload of 2990#. The tow rating with the same 3.73 rear end is 13,750#
I would get an extra 720# of payload and an extra 1250# of tow capacity - with just a change in spring pack.
But if I swapped out the springs myself, a RV dealership would still only recognize my 12,500 tow capacity - as that is what is listed on the build sheet for my truck.
