    My 2000 ecsb 6.0 4x4 shows about 5800 on the scale with all fluids full and a 180lb driver.

    I'd imagine no more than a 200lb greater weight with the DMax and teh newer style.

    Hope this helps.

    Funny... Mine is just under 5800, it weighed 6200 with two guys at about 200 pounds each and usual box of tools.
    This was at the dump after being emptied.

    Long bed or short bed? Man, you guys are light. I would have figured 6500- 7000 lbs.

    It's a short bed. I was wondering because I went on the scales at the sand pit and they said it weighed 7600. I have some weight in the bed, but not nearly a ton.

    I beginning to wonder how accurate these scales are! I figure the one I used at the dump was wrong and they most likely don't even care. As long as you pay the difference to them, thats all they want.payup

    Government scale go figure. :) I sure hope they not costing you extra $$$$.

    Even scarier, the same people that are ensuring the calibration of these scales are most likely the same ones ensuring we are getting a full gallon at the gas stations. :dizzy:

    I pretty much know the gallon meter at the stations are accurate since I damn near run it out of fuel every time and then fill it up. Just shy of the 34 gallon capacity.

    Mine scaled 12,000 last week with 1.5 tons of mix on. So 9,000 lbs empty, tailgate spreader is under 300 empty, I'm 215, (well, probably 220+ because I was dressed) and Missy the Wonder Dog is about 50. So 8,000 easy. I can't believe my truck is that much heavier than a srw shortbed.

    My reg cab 2500 with the 6.0 weighed 5325 at the dump empty. That is with half tank and me (150lbs). So these trucks really are not all that heavy

    I keep on bumping into the outfitters guides for each manufacture, but only have Dodges bookmarked. They seem to have the most accurate and detailed info. For example, the Dodge has a chart for the weight that each options adds to the truck, Not only total but divided into the weight applied to the front and rear axle.

    Hard to get to the chart for Dodge, but you can start at this link.
