    Not sure, but it should be posted on the inside of the drivers door opening. Should be on a metal plate by the door striker.

    Short or long bed?

    Long bed should weigh around 4400 lbs.

    Not real sure but I would guess it could be around or less than 500 lbs. difference lower than a long bed.

    Should be on a metal plate by the door striker.

    This wood be the GROSS vhicle weight.


    I would guess a 350 is about 300-400lbs, if you
    put it the bed, the truck and 350 should weight
    about 4000lbs. +/-500
    Good luck

    I weighed my truck way back and it was 6036 lbs. That was with 454,TH400,205,D44,14FF,38's and me. Now it's even fatter because of the D60,44's and me! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    Before I put the 454 in my Blazer, it weighed 5400 pounds. That was also with a soft top and 39.5's.

    My longbox 84K10 with a 350/700R4/NP208 and ten bolts weighs 4420 pounds with a quarter tank of petrol and no spare tire. It's also got a 90lb bed mat in the bed.

    My friend's shortbox only weighed 150lbs less than mine. I don't remember what he had in it/on it.

    This was weighed on a set of scales at a gravel pit so it may not be all that accurate.

    Hopefully this is close enough for your purposes.

    My 1 ton long box 2 by weighs 4900 lbs empty with a half a tank of gas so I bet a shortbox 4x4 weighs at least that much.

    1 ton has a heavier frame and the rear end weighs over twice what a 1/2 ton rear does...
