That's great news!
I'll put you north of 10k.
On any given day I'm at 8700 +/-.
I have a lot of extra stuff at all times, and you'll be packing similar tool and supply wise I suspect.
Then add the camper and its goodies, you'll have a jag for sure.
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

Right where I am, 8700 with about 3/4 tank of fuel

Trip has been amazing! In Coldfoot Alaska on the ice road to Deadhorse to the Artic Ocean!! Very little internet except in big towns so few pics to send. Truck and camper working great packed too many clothes dishes and pans and we have enough food to survive the winter! No wonder the truck weights over 10 k lbs!! I'll send more pics when I can.

Sweet!  Cant wait to see some pics.

That's pretty heavy for you.  My dually goes 9200 with aux tank full and some tools.
Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

Made it to Deadhorse and the Arctic Ocean Karen went for a dip it was great watching her!! We made it almost to the end of the Dalton Hwy then got a puncture in the right rear tire was able to fix it with a plug only stopped for about 20 minutes to fix it. We're in Denali right now and seeing some amazing things and lots of animals. Now heading towards the Kenai Peninsula.

Forgot what I posted we also have been in Seward and went on the Glacier and Whale watching tour. It was a 6 hour trip with a Prime Rib and Salmon dinner!! The meal was fantastic and the trip was even better!! We saw Humpback whales and Dall porpoises Stellar sea loins Killer whales sea otters and an eagle!! Then we got to the glacier and it was amazing we got to see it calving off a huge hunk of ice. The captain put the boat right up to the glacier and we could hear it cracking and popping!! Then we saw an ice burg right beside us flipping over. It was a great trip.

Before I forget you guys were right the truck was kinda heavy so I stopped at the first truck scale!! 11,240 lbs !!! 4600 lbs on the front and 6600 lbs on the rear!!! Good on the front rating but over on the rear by 600 lbs. But it handled it fine sat level with the Satble Loads on it. My wife knows how to pack every inch of the truck!! We had enough food and clothes for 3 months !

We love the camper for this type of trip. We bought it just for Alaska, we have a 30' 5th wheel for normal vacations. I wouldn't want a tall camper saw too many of them rockin and rollin on the ruff roads! No leaks and we spent a week in the Kenai Peninsula with nothing but rain!! We're going to sell it now that the trip is over so if someone is looking for a very good camper with some good mods done I can list everything that was done and photos going to be asking $4000 can work out a deal on delivery { Road Trip!!}

Camped inEagle at the National Forest Campground . 62 miles of 1-1 1/2 lane gravel road! Took a tour of the museum and Fort Egbert. Our guide was a senior in high school with a class of 2!! She said the town still ran off 2 large generators with a small backup! They also had a community well for people that don't have wells and a phone booth in town so they can calls if they don't have a satellite phone!!
