Axle Weights??

Anyone weighed their truck (4WD supercrew preferably) lately on the scales and gotten individual front & rear axle weights??? Just curious.

No...I'm not looking for a total weight of the truck; got that.

Doesn't it say that inside the door ? Front 3600/Rear 3200 or something like that ?

If it does (and I believe your absolutely right), then that's max allowable axle weight, not current sitting in the parking lot weight...I know my truck does't weigh 6,800 lbs.

Ahhh, - your right, they are lighter than that on the scales. I recall shipping weight of my truck was something like 4800 lbs when I ordered it. I didn't believe it was that light at the time.

I've my truck weighed on two different scales over the years and both times it was 5,300-5,500 lbs; that's normal, full tank of gas, completely unloaded, ready to drive. AND, that 5,500 is with my lift, wheel/tires, etc. I was just curious about the split (for no particular reason) without going back to the scales, cause it's most certainly not 50/50.

Yea, front end is allot heavier. I have my truck roller dollies right now so I slide it sideways in the garage if I need to easily. That was the plan anyway. The dollies are rated to 1500 lbs apiece, -1 per wheel.

Dollies are 1/4" steel w/3" castors. Dollies in front are sweating it lol. They haven't bent yet and it does work. It's a PITA to swing the front, I have to grunt a little, but I can do it. Well, until I hit the expansion joint in the concrete floor. I have get a little momentum going first and hope it's enough or I end up face planting into the fender.

So it's heavier up there, definitely.

I have them, but it's when I had my TT hitched up... Not sure if that's gonna help you, but it did tell me that I'm over weight on my truck!

When I rolled over the scales my axles weighed as follows;

trailer axles: #4540
truck Rear axle: #3400
truck Frt axle: #3080

This was done with me NOT in the truck (I had to read the scale weight at the closed truck weigh station from outside the booth!)

So, I'm another #230 of weight to the truck...

Trailer works out to have ~ #700 tongue weight. I was #460 over the trucks GVWR and #200 over the rear GAWR...

Oh well... What can I say?? I've towed this combo for over 9 years and going to do it again this year!

So if the tongue weight is at 700 lbs. I wonder how much that would take off the front axle ? A couple hundred, - if that, - probably not even.

I should also mention that I had the weight distribution hitch set too, so some of that was transferred to the front by it.

Yea, I'm not sure how you could add weight to the front without a fifth wheel hitch/slider set up or a goose neck perhaps. My front end came up as well.

Was on the scales Tuesday my truck weighs 5420lb like it sits, add the 1600lb trailer and I'm 7020lbs. I towed in at 7620lbs at the dump had to get a new weight card because I added my ladder rack back on. I hate pulling more than I have to esp with my personal truck.

Sucks bad too, maybe I should remove my nerf bars and the heavy tools, need to lighten 600lbs or more off that trailer too. I put air bags on the rear so my front doesn't raise and the rear doesnt sag. Wish I had the 7700 series now, just cause I has a 9.75" rear doesn't make me feel any better. I have the E4OD for the F250 in my family room getting rebuilt.

Spend the 10 bucks and go run it over a CAT scale to get individual axle weights. The Pilots and Flying J's have them in your area.

Cool, you must have the wife helpin yuh ? It's great when they understand and offer use of the facilities. Like the kitchen table and counter tops.

Right, what am I saying, or - dreaming rather...Like that ever happens.
