Finally Weighed

Yesterday, I finally got a chance to put my truck on those Cat scales, kinda a pain that it doesn't give you a read out at the scales, but whatever, at least I now know what I weigh.
9020 total weight with myself 350lbs, and full tank of fuel
5260 front axle
3760 rear axle - kinda thought that was a little low for the rear

But it is 280lbs less than what I previously was told.

Wow, that seems heavy, or my weight is wrong. With me at 190 and a full tank mine weighs just over 8000 lbs.

My CCLB, without me in it, is about 8,700lbs loaded. Your weight sounds about right.

Front vs Rear weight

Thanks for the information, I didn't realize the weight was that much forward biased on these trucks.

I don't want to hijack this thread, but it makes me think about drive train upgrades I have been thinking about. My truck has OEM LS rear diff, and with this information it seems that putting an e-locker in the front axle might be next single upgrade that would be useful in degraded/washed out roads in southern Utah. Any thoughts?, or should I start another thread. thanks, Paul

Hmm... I just reweighed mine again on the base scales and it weighed 8180 with me and a full tank. I hope these scales aren't that far off because I've been using them to make sure my Travel Trailers balance is correct.

Weighed with trailer

So I pulled on the scales again, this time pulling my utility trailer with a little more than a cord of wood. The trailer is a utility with the sides built up so that the wood could be hauled, it's a 16 ft tandem axle. So I go in to get my ticket and the weight is different, the front is 4960, back is 4600. Now the trailer axle is what threw me, 20600, there is just no f***ing way. The GCWR of the trailer it self is only 6000. And the gross weight that the scales said I was is 30160. I know that there is no way.
I'm a bit confused.
