How much does my Screw weigh?

I have a 2001 Screw with 5.4 and automatic. How much does it weigh?

I know it will pull my trailer with car but wondered if adding a WD hitch helps with braking also. It does squirm a bit in a panic stop.

I bought some mulch the other day and had my 02 on the scales. After subtracting my weight, the truck was 5420 lbs.

There should be a tag on the driver side door frame that gives the empty weight (EW) of your vehicle as it is equipped from the factory. Although your accessories (bed liner, cap, running boards, etc.) may cause some variance, it should be close. My 2002 Lariat 4x4 SCREW was just a shade over 5000 lbs. My current 2006 Lariat 4x4 SCREW is listed at a little over 5500 lbs. I had the 2002 weighed, and it was within a few lbs. of the weight shown on the door sticker.

Depends, how fat are you and your passengers?

I've never seen a sticker that listed actual curb wieght for any vehicle, including my 2 F-150's.

I had my 2003 Lariat 4x4 weighted and it was right around 5300 pounds with the low fuel light on and mostly empty.

How much does your trailer weigh? Does it have electric brakes and are you using a brake controller? Regarding a WD hitch, pretty much 4000+ pounds will benefit for 1/2 ton pickups for more that just stopping.

I could not find a sticker with the weight on it so I am going to go with your weight.

What's a henway?

Or and F-150... depends

You got air conditioning? (that's kind of heavy)

Power windows? Moon roof? Got some motors for power seats? Got any skid plates? Bed liner? etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

Up here, in the frozen north, we don't get an "EW" (empty weight) on our door stickers. You have to figure it out from two other things...

1. GVWR - the maximum rated weight that your vehicle is designed to be with a full load (including you, your wife, your kids, dog a full tank of gas and the picknic hamper). This is on a sticker on your door:

Click the image to open in full size.

Mine has a GVWR of 7200lbs (note: most of that unintelligable garble you see on that sticker is acronyms and abbreviations... the rest of it is French)

2. Payload - the GVWR of your vehicle, minus it's curb weight (the truck alone, with all the fuel and fluids it normally carries - but not you... the wife, etc). This is on a sticker (up here anyway) on your B-colum...

Click the image to open in full size.

My maximum payload is 1222lbs.

7200lbs - 1222lbs = 5778lbs.

My truck, without me but with a tank of gas and a full windshield washer bottle, weighs 5,778lbs

I've been over the scales to the city dump about sixty times and that number is pretty close.

My 2001 weighs just over 5100, but I had rhino lining sprayed in the bed.

Over the scale toady at 2735kg... minus me... my 06 Screw with Lariat trim weighs 5,805 lbs vs. 5,778 (theoretical)

What's that, 27 lbs difference?

Probably accounts for the bed liner...

Geeze, Idaho...

You're 300lbs heavier than me? (er... your truck is)

I wonder y?

I know the stock wranglers are LT275/65R20-E-126S, guessing they weight about 60 lbs each. Never looked a fuel level when I get weighted, have to do that next time. As for the rest of the crap stuffed into the door pockets...don't see 300 lbs there...

Like APT, I've never seen a sticker listing curb weight on any Ford truck - they don't list it because it is meaningless. The GVWR is the main number that affects most people, with GCVW being important to the trailer towing crowd.

As far as the dump scales go, 7200 - 1222 = 5,978 lbs., not 5,778......

I guess the scale was wrong all 60 times, huh ???? Unless you think a 200 lb. error is "pretty close".
