How much does your truck weigh?

Without me in it, full fuel, and normal tool box goodies she is 8,000 (4800/3200). We went for a drive in the mountains this weekend, and in addition to my normal stuff had the winch installed, little bit of fire wood, some camp chairs, cooler and the whole fam (me, wife, 3 kids 430 lbs) we were 9,040 (5240/3800) leaving town with a full tank. It amazes me how easy the front axle is to go over GAWR (5200 lbs) on without a trailer or big load in the bed. Light loading the truck makes the front axle very heavy!

My truck is 5,200# FAWR 6,200# RAWR 9,900# GVWR 21,000# GCWR Street tires 48#, street rims 23# Winter tires 54#, winter rims 23# I really don't pay attention to the published GVWR, I use 12,200# GVWR (DRW limit for same frame), FAWR, and rear tires (axle is rated at 9350 on a DRW and 10,900# by AAM).
