Actual running weight of Bronco

Has anyone taken their truck over to the jyard and had it weighed? I am curious since shortly I am hoping to do this when I go and "cash out" what is left of my aluminum wheels. I plan on going over with softtop on, no rear seat. I don't have a winch up front yet, and I'll check the fuel guage. Just would like to get some comparisons of actual weights. Bumpers, winches, tranny/motor combos, model years??, etc. Past threads we always refer to curb weight or GVWR.

Humor me here, I know some don't care too much, but if you do have an actual weight, post it please.

Other Bronco owners might like knowing what these trucks really weigh in daily driving. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Actual running weight of Bronco

My curb weight was <font color=blue>4764</font color=blue>lbs.
Don't have the breakdown, but it was real close to 50/50 front to rear.
2 people (340 lbs.) with ski gear, 1/2 tank gas, top on, rear seat in, 31X11.5 tires on the same 15X10 rims I have now.
That was on truck-stop scales on I-90 and Hwy18 on the way down Snoqualmie Pass.

WD, are you <font color=blue>including</font color=blue> the people, gas, gear in that 4764 weight? Those aftermarker massive bumpers, and winches seem to add quite a bit of weight.

Re: Actual running weight of Bronco

You usually carry quite of bit of stuff too Steve don't you? I would assume that would be in your weight figure.

Yep.
Had the bro read the weight off the meter while we were sitting in the truck.
Those nice folks at that stop turn the meter around so you can read it when they're not there.[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Actual running weight of Bronco

That was driving across a certified scrapyard scale one day when I was selling a load of steel. I had all my normal tools, both bumpers, my own 220lb, and I don't remember how much gas (a full tank only weighs about 220lb). This Warn XD9000i winch only weighs about 80lb, so my everyday curb weight is still right around 3 tons.
