Have a general question.

What percentage of total TC weight, on average , is over the truck bed ?

Just to be clear : %age of weight ( the bed) over the cab ?

%age of weight over the bed of the truck box?

Appreciate any help with this . Thank you.

Is this a trick question? All of the weight is in (over) the bed. The part hanging over the truck cab leverages the rear of the TC to be heavier on the front of the floor, but that is still on the truck bed. You do not need the TC strapped in to keep it from tilting forward, all weight is on the bed.

A more interesting question is weight distribution on the axles.
