4200 Gawr Rr.
Interesting numbers, far exceeding what the tires or rims are likely rated on the front. Fr and Rr always exceed GVWR. Nice to have some capacity though! ;)

That's OK, We gotta dream sometimes! Gotta be able to hold that Diesel someday! lol. :)

So, it is 3699 GAWR Front and 4200 GAWR Rear. Plenty for me...

How did the 08 rear axle rating go up by 400# yet the differential and axle shaft remain the same as the previous models? The only change was on the axle houseing and that was in regards to the suspension system.

I thought the axle got a bit larger (but only from what I read; I have no direct knowledge). It did sound like they fixed a few weak links like the spring shackles. Depending on what was the previous limiting factor, you could get a higher GAWR from just bigger tires, or even higher tire pressure recommendations. Tires that aren't running at the max 44 psi get derated quite a bit, in addition to the 10% margin taken out when P-type tires are used on trucks/suvs.
