How much does your truck weigh?

How much does your truck (empty) weigh? Reason I ask is that for many years now both local scales (dump, & weigh station) have had my 2500 (as in sig) weighing in at 7600 lbs +/- for fuel, etc. Now, suddenly they both are saying I'm at 8200 lbs. I know I have not added 600 lbs to my truck, & I haven't gained any weight myself. Next time I'm nearby, I'll run through the Cat scales to find out for sure. But as a result of this discrepancy, I don't know what I weigh with my camper loaded either. I know it's bringing me above my GVWR some, but according to the local scale recently it has me @ 12,760 lbs!!! According to my calculations, I MAY be as high as 11,000 with full complement of gear for a month of hunting. My tires are rated for 3650 lbs, & the rims I have are rated for 3500 lbs.
So, what do you think?

I usually scale at 8 empty with my 11 2500 Laramie. I have a rack, assorted chains and straps and dot gear in the truck all the time.

I'm 8400lbs with me and just basic tools in toolbox. Your being a 2500 4x2, I don't see how your over 8k lbs. Even with 4x4 it still shouldn't be.

I think mine was about 7600# with me in it and an almost full tank of fuel last I checked on my scales at work.

OK. I've been doing some thinking. I know that can be dangerous, but here it is.
IF the local scales are right, & I rolled out of here last fall @ 12760 lbs. This would be the 3rd-4th year I did this with the front axle @ 5300 lbs, & the rear @ 7300 lbs. I know my 11.5" AAM is actually rated for over 8000 lbs, my tires are rated for 3650 lbs, but my wheels are rated for 3500 lbs. What to do?
I could get a set of black XD 808's rated for 3600 lbs. Or I can get some Type 81's with 265/70R 19.5 for lets say a lot more $$$. Or I could convert to a dually, for even more $$$$. I think the scales here are lying to me anyway, & I rolled out last fall @ about 11200 lbs, probably a little less so I was probably only @ 6000 lbs on the rear axle.
What would you do? (buying another truck is a NO GO, so don't even say it!)

your rims are rated for 3500 each which means 14k and you were at 12k. Seems to me that you dont have a problem unless i missing something.you have the same axle as a dually
