He said its under CDL and the only weight he could give me was the shipping weight. the shipping weight is 6,595lbs. Im sure thats without the dump bed. the one thing i cant figure out is, can it pull my 26 foot enclosed trailer(10,000 GVWR)legaly in vriginia. i dont want to have to deal with the whole CDL thing. Thanks for any help.
YES. The truck is under CDL and the 10k trailer is under CDL as well.

Can either of you show us why or where it says one needs a CDL for a combo over 26k alone? Without the trailer being over 10k.

Length virtually means nothing here.
