    I just took out my 88 suburban out to the gravel pit to weigh it on the scale. 5800 with me, my girlfriend, a 70lb subwoofer box, and other misc. junk. Any body else done this before? I want to compare how much my beast weighs compared to k5's and shortbox, longbox, etc.

    My '89 Burb was right in the same area, with 14bff and 33's on steel rims, tools, and 12" sub.

    Sheoldeblaze, do they weigh you on the same scale in and out? If so they might not worry about accuracy they just measure the difference. The best place to go is a truck scale, they are always accurate, just hit one on the side of the highway during quite hours.

    Well, I guess 7200 isn't too bad when you look at a Ford excursion, my buddy weighed his in at just shy of 9000!
