    Does anybody know how much a stock bed weighs?

    I'm designing a custom bed for my 75 C20 and had an interesting thought...How will the weight of the framing on the new bed compare to the stock rustpile I'm removing?

    So it looks like my estimated 900 pounds for the new bed isn't too bad...

    I'm not gonna lose as much load capability as I thought.

    Thanks for the quick answer.
