7400lbs ???? That doesn't sound right. According to Ford base curb weight for a 4x2 should be 5549lbs ( 5844 for EL )
Did you actually weigh it or are you going by the sticker on the door jam ?
They do weigh more than the older ones because of all the safety stuff but not 2000lbs.
I didn't think so either - but I did get an "oasis report" from the Ford Dealership while being serviced. This report gives me the run down on the Expy - build date, warranty info, construction codes, what's on it from the factory, etc.
It also states that the Gross Vehicle Weight is 7,400 LB.
