I just weighed my 02 F350 CC, LB, SRW, 4X4, 6 Speed. It has a B&W Fifth Wheel Hitch, my wife and me and full fuel tank, weighed in at 8,120 lbs. It just seems a little heavy to me. I just purchased a new Fifth Wheel with a pin weight of 2000 lbs. The truck has a 9900 GVWR, so I am going to be 220 lbs. over. Does the 8120 truck weight seem about right or is it on the heavy side? I haven't hooked up to the new Fifth Wheel yet as it's still on order but given these weights does it look like a set of Airbags are the future?

yeah i have the same truck exc 2wd and with my ut trlr 16' it grossed at about 9500. i have put 10k or 5er and it pulled just fine. i think you should put the trlr on and drive it for a few mile and see how your truck sits with trlr on. if it sits good then i would not do airbags; if she sits lower than add load kits.

My '99.5 F-250 CC, LB, SRW, 4x2 automagic weighed about 8,000 before I tied onto the 5er. That included Rhino bedliner, toolbox full of tools and fluids, Reese 15k 5er hitch, Darling Wife, PuppyDog, and a full tank of diesel. Your 4x4 should weigh a few hundred pounds more than my 4x2, so if you haul the same tools and stuff that I do, then you're a coupla hundred pounds too light.
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.
