Im scratching my head. My 2019, V10, 176 WB F53 chassis shows the GVWR as 16,000 lbs. same as the Ford specs for the 2022 V8. However, my GCWR is 22,000. The V8 shows 23,000 lbs. I wonder what is different between the 2. ??

Did Ford change anything else on the chassis besides engine such as. USPS soon or mods to the brakes. Those are factored into GCWR.

There were more upgrades to the Godzilla chassis than just the engine.

Ace, Take a look at the 2022 chassis chart. They list both a 176 16k chassis. And an 18k 176 chassis. Specs look identical. Am I missing something?

I don't know what chart you're looking at but the 16K and 18K 178" chassis for 2022 have different front and rear axle weight ratings.
