1992 F450 Super Duty front axle capacity needed

I've got a '92 F450 Super Duty that I'd like to change the registered weight for. The DMV forms I have to fill out ask for front and rear axle capacity and tire size. My dealer tells me from the serial number that it has an 11,000lb rear axle and a 14,500lb GVWR, but can't tell me the front axle capacity rating. 3500lbs would be too easy, right? That seems pretty light to me.

There's a specific section on the form to fill out for front axle capacity and tire size that has to be signed by either the dealer or a certified scale station, so I have to know what the specific front axle rating is.

Normally, on most trucks there's a sticker in the door telling the front and rear axle ratings, but not on this one. I've checked in the glove compartment and under the hood as well. Google hasn't told me much, either. Anybody on here smarter than my dealer?

edit: Oh yes, I called the Ford customer service line and they couldn't tell me anything beyond rear axle type. They were a lot less help than my dealer.

A little reading but:


See post #15
Some how they came up with 5000lbs.
Owners manual should have something in it though.

The door tag looks to have been removed. Some of the door stickers are there, but the truck has been repainted and there's a spot that looks like the new paint over old glue. I'm betting that is where the tag was. I bought the truck used and no, unfortunately it didn't come with an owner's manual.

I just read where that thread said 5000lbs Destructicon (for a 97 I think it was- should be the same), thanks. That makes sense and was basically what I thought it should be. It's got tires for over 6000. I wish I could find some "official" source though, because the DMV wants either the dealership or a scale operator (suppose that could be just about anyone though) to sign and stamp and certify that it is 5000lbs...
