weight of an f250?

setting up my Livewire, does anyone have an idea what the weight is of an '05 F250, 4wd crew cab? It now also has 37" tires on it, so I assume a bit more than stock.

Find some scales most truck stops or places they sell sand and gravel or land scaping materials or a scrap yard. Some times it is free some places want to charge.

I'm guessing you'd be around 8000lbs.
(Or somewhere from 7900-8200lbs)

I know my 01 (CC SWB) with a 8.5" lift and 38s on 16.5s and less than a half tank of fuel was 8060lbs.

Our 05 super cab short box comes across the scale at the dump, 2 passengers (about 400 pounds) and 3/4 tank of fuel at 7660

man, maybe I just need to find me a scale, those are some pretty big differences. I do know the dump has one, maybe can make a trip that way this afternoon and see if they will entertain my request for the weight check

Mine has a curb weight of around 6400 lbs. Don't confuse curb weight (truck with all fluids and a full tank of fuel w/no passengers) with gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). My GVWR is 10,000 lbs. I subtracted the curb weight from the GVWR to get how much weight I had in the "bank" to figure how much the pin weight of my fifth wheel could be plus passengers and cargo in the truck. Hope this helps...

6400lbs?

My stock height 07 PSD 4x4 Super Cab Long Bed weighs more than that (somewhere around 7400-7700lbs...can't remember exact number).
But my tool box probably is a good 200lbs or so of that.
