My 2005 F-250 crew cab, long bed 4X2 weighs 7,000 even with a full tank of fuel. I installed a 9,000 lb. lift before I bought the truck. It has had zero problems with it but if I'd known I was going to buy this truck I would have probably bought a 10,000 lb. lift for peace of mind. I do have close to a 25% fudge factor as is and I'm sure, hopefully, that they also build a safety factor into them also. By the way, my lift is made in the U.S. not China. Bought it from Americasprideonline.com. I have also put my buddy's 05 4X2 dually on it.
10,000 on the dot. 06 CC LB DRW-also has 97 gallon aux tank(full at time of weighing) and 36 gallon gasoline aux tank(full at time of weighing). Do I win anything for most curb weight?
And it still accelerates like a scalded cat. Love my 6.0
