There you go Chris you are within the envelope, now the question is on road manners. Driving with big weight near the top of the capacity can give you white knuckles for sure...been there.
Here are some things you can do to change all that:
1) Hellwig Big Wig rear (and maybe front) swaybar. I run F/R, but could get away with just the rear.
2) You may want to consider Torklift 'StableLoads for your rear springs, inexpensive and can install in the driveway. I have run them on the past 3 trucks.
3) Rancho RS 9000 XL adjustable shocks
I run these on my trucks and have on the last 3 F 350's, would not leave home without them. Your SB/SRW is gonna need some help I would bet and the above will give it and total cost is well below $1k and you can do it in the driveway with hand tools.
