Not sure about the Kevin advice, but when the mfg tells you how to check for wear, I tend to listen to them.

The 14500 was for the '09 and '10 models--it is now 14000 like all the rest.

These trucks are generally heavier than a comparable...

Guessing you already have disc brakes? If you are getting hubs/bearings from Kodiak, ask him for a break on bearings as they told me they were trying to close them out of inventory.

Stanley,
With my 450s, I was always at +9000 on a 9500 rated rear axle. Truck itself weighed 10400 loaded for long trips. 10400 + 4200 PW put me right at the 14500 gvwr on the truck.

"we noticed our roof has wrinkles in it Is that a problem"

Was this pointed out on the walk-thru--if so, what was the response? I would not have accepted this on a new trailer.

10-4 on the not much room to work.
