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.

No fear, no doubt, all in balls out

If every American cared enough to purchase one USA made garment per year the impact would be $9 billion. That is a lot of American jobs.
