    How much does my truck weigh?

    How much does a single cab short wheel base fleet side weigh? Silverado trim, 350/700r4, but I really don't need it that specifically.
    And if anybody knows other model weights, feel free to post.
    For example how much lighter is a step side?
    I weighed my Blazer once and it may have been 5000lbs, but that doesn't seem right, maybe 5400?

    Not long ago me & a freind did a stepside fleetside swap. Both felt about the same in weight.

    Re: How much does my truck weigh?

    I hauled off some scrap metal in mine last week. Weight in was 5220, out was 3880. Used the '78 in my Sig. It's a big ten model, short fleet, 350, 700R4 had about 1/2 tank of fuel and Im about 165. Probably had about 50 lbs of other junk in the cab.

    Ya I was surprised too. I figured it was close to 5k empty too, I guess with no gas, driver and other stuff close to 3600

    86 suburban(see signiture) weighs around 5000 empty...then you add driver(180) and 40 gallons of gas to get 5500 goin down the road....my stepside(see signiture) weighs 3000 as it sits, needs engine and tranny, then it'll weigh around 3600..what year is it? Round eye trucks weighed a couple hundred lbs more than square eyes due to thicker glass, different fenders, etc.
