What is the sticker Payload on your truck? Subtract that from your GVWR and it should be what the truck weighed as it left the factory with a 150# driver and full fuel.

I just went back and looked at the GVWR, which is listed at 12,300. The door sticker says 4292 cargo capacity, so 12300 - 4292 = 8008 empty, add in me, side steps, tonneau, front hitch, and some misc stuff in the truck and I guess the scale is pretty close.


Oops, missed that post, as stated before if used for selling product it needs to be accurate. Scales now work with load cells,
It is amazing how accurate they can be.

Agree. 4th gens gained some weight from 3rd gens which gained weight from 2nd gens.
Last dump run with the 07 Mega Cab, 7900 lbs with me, handful of tools behind the seat and an unknown amount of fuel.
The 6.7, big auto trans and chassis upgrades of 4th gen, that sounds about right.


Are you saying you're a light weight? [emoticon]

My 88 ext cab 4x with a BB was 5800 lbs. 96 CC 6.5td was 6600 lbs. 05 CC dually with dmax was 7300 lbs. 81 an 2000 reg cab base models under 5000 es....yes recent trucks no matter the brand are heavier than past year's.
This is both good and bad honestly.
I pay fees based on gross here in WaSt. Tare is needed, as that is what is used to determine min gross wieght you must buy. Ie tare times 1.5 to next highest ton. Using dually 05 as an example, 7300 x 1.5 = 10,950 or 12,000 minimum tag to purchase. Manufacture have is 11400. I was licensed and legal to 14000.
My reg cabs are/were licensed at 8000. NOT legal to 8600 door tag.

I can’t say that True Mass is less or more effective than CytoGainer or N-Large because my weight gains were about exactly the same. My clean bulking goal is 1lb increase in bodyweight per week and I hit that with all 3 weight gainers. So I’d have to say effectiveness is equal ***Link Removed***

By comparison, when I took our F150 thru the dump last week, with three adults, full tank of gas and my generator in the bed of the truck, we were at 6000#.

Wouldn't have guessed that a one-ton would be that much heavier than a half-ton, but a mostly aluminum body Ford gasser should weigh less than a mostly steel body Dodge diesel.

Well went to get some sand in DD 2004 Ram CTD 3500 DRW, I was surprised as it scaled about 7,800ish, on a GVWR of 12,300# about 4,500# payload no sticker in 2004.
