I took a load of steel to the scrap yard last week & used my truck because our company truck was having problems.

I was shocked when I went back over the scales, empty and saw the scales read 6,700lbs for my 04 QC Ram w/manual trans. I had even taken my tool box off to make room for the load and the fuel light was on! Who would uh thunk it?

Anyone else weighed their truck?

Much of that weight comes from the engine itself. The Cummins weighs in about 1000lbs

That's a pretty expensive load with the price of steel now. I just bought a 4 X 8 X 1/2" for $500.

We cut it up and weld it to the bottom of our 14' blades, on our wheel loaders at work, for wear pads.
