Probably enuff for an overwhieght ticket if a cop sees you!

My guess is about 1865 lbs.

Are the springs bottomed out or is the shocks and rubber dampers keeping it up?

LOL My first guess was going to be 2,222, but I knew the poor lil' truck would pop a kidney if it had that much weight. ;)

Don't try that in Maine. The cops will write you a nine foot ticket and stuff it so far down your throat that your shoe laces will be able read the price.

I would have to say over 3,000 I had a truck like that once. My Tacoma has the same size bed. unless you have plywood across the bottom half.

Which would weigh more on your truck, a ton of coal, or a ton of feathers ? THINK ABOUT IT :lol: , someone said a ton of feathers was lighter than a ton of rocks at work :confused: :gee: :doh: :rofl:

Guessing 2,222 I was only 62 pounds off!

I had my freshman year math teacher ruffled once....she asked what weighed more, a pound of gold or a pound of feathers. I said the gold weighed more & she said "A pound's a pound". I interrupted her & reminded her that gold is weighed on the Troy scale that has 31.1 grams per ounce, while feathers are weighed on the avoirdupois scale which has 28.3 grams per ounce, therefore one would think a pound of gold weighs more than a pound of feathers. She wasn't impressed. Then I went on to say a "troy pound" has 12 ounces, not 16, so actually a pound of gold weighs less. She wasn't quite sure what to do. :)
