Truck Weight...

Just wanted to say I finally weighed my truck. I have been in a few discussions with people lately and for the sake of argument I needed to go get it weighed. Turns out it doesn't weigh as much as I was led to believe. It's a 2000 Extended Cab Shortbed. Toolbox, 6"lift and 37's. With 3/4 of a tank of fuel and me out of the truck it is exactly 7400lbs. (This was on a certified scale. I was under the impression it should be around 8500lbs. Just a little gee whiz info.

My truck gets weighed all the time with my trailer at the scrap yard. Usually around 10,600 with the trailer empty.

The most I ever weighed in at w/o my trailer was when I went to the drag strip...I know

My truck, 7/8 tank of fuel, 39 1/2"W JOBOX in the bed full of tools, and me in it~8180#
No wonder I couldn't break into the 15's

Later

OK, Now I'm wondering, How much can you tow before the Highway Patrol bothers you, I bought my 13,000 lb.trailer from a guy with a Chevy 2500, I figured this truck would do it, but I guess I could still get popped.......
