For the wheelbase length, you need to know the length of the proposed dump body. For axle capacity and type/capacity of tag axle, you need to know the capacity of the dump body, ie: 16 yard, 20 yard, etc.. A good starting point might be to find a modern truck with the same size dump body you want and make note of wheelbase and axle size. Trucks that are meant to be hauling a heavy load on their backs (dump truck) are usually spec'd much heavier than a tractor pulling the same weight as the load is then shared between the rear axles of the tractor and the axles of the trailer.
