Most weight in around 4200-4600lbs. Depends on the truck's configuration and if the driver is included. My truck would be a bit lighter than most b/c I pretty much have a stripped down R/T (no power anything) but I think that I more than make up for the wieight.......hehe

without the driver my 2000 R/T Club Cab weighed 4180 on the scale with normal crap in the car...so probably 4150

looking to loose weight....
ditch the spare tire, jack, tailgate, lightweight rims, possibly get a carbon fiber hood

thats all i can think of

Best place to weigh is at a truck stop, cause the scales are certified. I weighed mine and in street trim with a 1/4 tank of gas and me in it I hit 4160lbs. I'll be doing some weight reduction over the winter and then I'll take it back, I want to get under 4K with me in it.

i think alot of the extra weight compared to the genII is in the frame imo. not much more added to the body though.

id say 4050lbs for a reg cab, and like 4500 for the CC.

on a moving company scale my truck (without me) weighed in at 4240 pounds with a full 22 gallon gas tank. this was before i swapped in a rollpan (rear bumper is quite heavy) and ran bigger wheels last year. this also includes the spare tire and camper shell, but my truck is only a v6

My 99 Sport CC 2wd was 4120 with me at the rock quarry, no spare, rear bumper, jack, no hard tonneu. Who knows if their scales are accurate.
