How much do you weigh!!??

Has anyone weighed their trucks empty "just to see?" I took my 2016 2500HD duramax across the scales the other day with just me and a couple hundred pounds of tools in the back and was floored by the number. Now Im a big boy, bout 400ish. My weight plus my tools was far piece from the listed curb weight 6400+700 being 7100. She tipped in a 8560 on the truck scales. WFT........
Crew Cab short box 4x4 Duramax. Anyone know what it weighs? Thanks, Mike

CC SB duramax has a curb weight closer to 7400. Look at the yellow sticker and it will show cargo capacity. Subtract that from 10K will give you curb weight.

My CC/SB/4x4 denali is 7400 empty. mostly empty tank, no driver, etc.

7200. I could get it down to 6450 at the track. Was fun trying to add 800lbs for the times I sledpulled in the 8000 class.

I just scaled my 17 again the other day at a Highway Patrol scale, 5440 on front axle, 3060 on the rear, 60 gallon aluminum transfer tank and pump full, fifth wheel hitch and onan quiet diesel 5.5k generator in the bed. I also scaled it last week with my 2018 Solitude 310GK 5er hooked up, 5460 on the front, 6600 on the rear and 10200 on the trailer axles with no water in the 5er. That weight will jump about 700 lbs when the water is added.

Oh, and in case anyone is wondering why my front end is heavy, it is called a ranch hand bumper and 17k electric winch.

On my last weekend outing with the 5er, I hit the scales not knowing what my 32 foot Montana actually weighed. With a couple hundred pounds in the truck plus the PullRight slider had the truck right at 10,000 lbs. The Trailer axles came in at 8800 Lbs with the tanks empty. So my pin weight should be just under 2000 Lbs. Technically the truck is overweight by 800 Lbs, although I'm way under the 22,000 total weight limit. Guess I need shift cargo into back of trailer to get the pin weight lighter.

So your pin weight is 3600lbs?

I weigh just about right. I used to pull this with an '06 LBZ. This is much better.
