Question Pick up Weights?

I ran across the local Montana DOT scale this morning to see what my F250 6.7 Supercab weighed, at axles, and total. I was surprised ,I about don't believe it. With full fuel, aftermarket sprayin bedliner, RollnLock tonneau cover, driver off, front axle weight showed 4680, rear axle showed 3340, 8020 total. Slow day, I got on/off the scale, and it changed with my weight. I don't remember the numbers, but my 97 Supercab,7.3 was lighter. Anybody scaled out their rigs, I'd like to hear the results. Thanks, Pete

I have read were many trucks weigh 8.000 and a touch!

Thats why the guys that like to Race will drop the spare Tire and tail gate and anything else they can take off,to Lighten her up....

I would say your weight is Average.

This is also why Ford Pulls so much better than the other guys!

Diesel motor,Trans and the axles are heavy items !!!

Yeap,Whats funny is GM use to be a Lot Lighter,But from what I hear they are only 400 LBS lighter Now...

Funny cause with most other Trucks...Gassers...You think Lighter is Better ,but with a Diesel First thing that comes to mind is more fuel better air LOL Cause she's Got the Power to Move the Weight and get Good MPG :~) With Correct air,Fuel and Gear ratio

It's the nature of the beast. Towing capacity is a function of power and weight of the tow vehicle. As towing capacity goes up, generally speaking so will the weight of the vehicle.
