I'm pretty sure when you are fucking stupid, you know you are fucking stupid and knowingly continue to be fucking stupid, it makes even more fucking stupid.

Do yourself a favour and fill between the ramps with extruded mesh. First time you step between the ramps and brake a leg you'll be thankful.

Nope it wont be close that. Last I weighed unloaded was
4 820 front and 4,880 rear.
Who gives a fuck about un loaded?

Add a 6k lb crawler and 800lbs of tounge weight 8' behind the axle, plus all the shit you bring on a long trip, the family, all their stuff, a full tank of fuel and I bet you will be a lot closer to 12k than you think.

In the plans, that or aluminum. Rest of the square tube will be replaced with lighter weight round as well

Unloaded is all I've had to go off of for now. Gear will get packed in the trailer, really don't pack much in crawler to begin with. You know, with all that extra storage space. Putting crawler back together now.

(could be wrong) so lets say with trailer and people almonst 16k..on a 3500....yep i would want my family in that, sure it would do well in an accident with that crawler less then a foot from that cab.

Although maybe not the way I would do it, I do like that you went out and bought a new truck and aren’t scared to modify it and then use it on a long trip relatively untested. Keep going I like the progress thus far.

Cab and chassis in my book is shown as a C/K 3600 (not mistype)

Gcwr is 31,300lbs. Trailer rating not listed because vehicle weight is unknown. "For chassis cab and pickup delete vehicles, choose an appropriate hitch and load the truck and trailer within the limits of GCWR, GVWR, and RGAWR."

Straight from the 2018 GM Duramax supplement manual. So if his rear axle weight rating is good, truck is "good" as far as ratings go.
