I weighed mine and seems like it was alot more than that! hmmm....i think there was two people in it and maybe i had a full tank of fuel. Can't remember what the weight was now....that was over a year ago but i wrote it down in my book.

How much less does a non dually weigh without 4 doors and just an extended cab? My 91 f150 5.0 v8 weights ~4500lbs empty, my dads 03 f150 shortbed ext cab weights ~5300 and im guessing my 06 F350 long bed diesel ext cab weighs ~7300?

Go to any small town grain Co-Op and they have a scale. Most will let you weigh for free.

Thats pretty cool. I have weighed mine before and she was around 8600 lbs. Its a 4 door short bed 3/4 ton. but i have toolboxes in the bed and a small air compressor. I just never new those things added that much extra weight.
