    My truck with me in it. I weigh 200 lbs and I can still take out the passenger seat, center console and sub box that holds two 12's. I am guessing I can get it down to 4450 with me in it. To get to 4595, I had 17's two are stock alumunim wheels with DRs and the other two are spare steelies, spare is always out, sway bar is always out, and tailgate was off, overload springs are gone, no rear wheel wells, and thats it.

    i think alot of guys confuse GVW with the actual weight of the truck. they are two completly different things...
    i know you may not believe this but here goes. i've wieghed mine at both track scales and cat scales and got different results. the cat scale always says i'm 200-300 heavier than i am. now that being said the very first time i used a track scale i know it had been certified for the orielly nationals race at ennis 2 weeks prior. all or my wiegh ins since then have been fairly accurate. the problem is the cat scales are ment to wiegh heavier larger vihicles that have a bigger footprint for thier wieght and our little trucks dont wiegh properly on them. now one thing you can do is some speed shops have individual scales for each tire that would be a good way to wiegh it with more accurate results.

    If thats so then my 4wd QC weighs 5300 lbs?

    and my 2wd QC weighs 4700 lbs?

    ive stood on the scale by myself. it says i weight 180 and thats what i weigh so its accurate even for small weights.

    March of '08 at Las Vegas my p/u in race trim, weight was 4700lbs. One year later, March of '09, guess what, 4700lbs! Now, April of this year(09), I weigh my p/u at Ennis twice( raced there twice in April), guess what, 4700lbs in race trim! All times I weight, I was in truck! I weigh 270/275!

    I would say that the scales at Ennis is right on! My p/u w/o me is 4430.

    I removed ft. sway bar 4 years ago, remove tailgate, spare tire and all loose items in cab, tools, spare parts, maps, etc. I don't remove seats,panels,etc,I
    don't have carpet, I'am a st, brought for racing!

    Track scales have to be certified also!!

    If and when I lower my p/u's weight,it should be easy for me to get down to 4100/4200lbs.

    Have fun, stay safe!!
