Just came back from the local recycling center where I had my truck weighed. They said 8750 lbs. --That can't be right, can it? Isn't that way too high?
Just had me in it (200 lbs) and about 30 gallons of fuel (~200 lbs) and nothing else. XLT version, crewcab, A/T.

You have to define "empty". My normal empty has a spray-in bedliner, toolbox full of tools, extra fluids, Darling Wife and one or two puppydogs. Oh, and a 5er hitch. About 8,000 pounds before I tie onto the trailer. Add 400 for your 4x4 and add 400 for your dually, and you should be close to 8,800 pounds "empty". And you are.

My Sierra Blanca in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it a coupla years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream.
