How much does your truck weigh?

Recommended Posts

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!

I don't know the split weight, but full tank, + my fat ___ in it, the QCSB tips in at 7270 with the bed empty.

This summer when I took a load of scrap to the recyclers my truck weighed 6960 with about 3/4 tank of fuel and the usual stuff in the toolboxes.

Some 9500 with full toolbox, spare tires, full tank and me...that 13 speed, 19.5s and a big pile of straps and tie downs don't help things much.I think I'm usually at or just above front AWR.

Anyone know what changed on the front axle between the 4850 (IIRC) rating and the 5200 rating? Is that the D60/AAM 10.5 changeover? I have the lighter rating, and am always right at it if not a bit over.

Yes... As in like the axle dana might of rated the axle for graeater limits... Like I can tell you that the Cummins ISB engine is rated for vehicle weight of 50K pounds... :wow:

How is your 05 so light? Or is that completely empty? 2wd?There are guys that diet their QCSB's and are happy with a 7200 lb race weight.
