Put my truck on the scales today just for fun. Looks like she tops out at 6080lbs. This is with 100% fuel (36 gal.) and no driver. I also have a toolbox which i'm estimating to weigh 100-120lbs.

Cool! Thanks for sharing.. It's amazing a truck that weights that much can tow over 10,000 pounds..lol

One thing I've been wanting to do is to weigh my trailer when it's fully loaded, and I've been wondering how I can do that. Could I just pull into one of those weighing stations that you see on the interstate where trucks pull in? Will I have to unhook the trailer? How much does it cost?

Not too sure, but there may be a truck stop with scales. You could also call a moving company in your area and see if they have or know where a scale is. Would need to be a larger Interstate mover - they're required to get an empty tare and then loaded weight prior to moving stuff.

Yes that's exactly what I did, just pulled into a truck stop, got on the scale like the big boys, $10 later I had the weight. Very simple straight forward process.

Thanks MATTWAYNE07.....I was going to do the same. We have the same truck with the exception of that I have 3.55's. Can't believe that mine would be that much different. I don't have a tool box, so I will go with 6000 give or take a few pounds. We will be towing our behind our motorhome which has a 6K tow bar rating and 10K hitch rating on the rig.
