My 02, 2wd, quad cab rolls across the scales at 6,200 lbs.
Two different scales, same weight. Add 200 for your 2' of bed. Add 1,000 for 4wd.

02 2500, auto,4" turbo back,puck,Gauges....... E7153 Airtex LP because I refuse to conform...201k+ and counting on original trans.. It runs on oil so it tows stuff good.
