    Since curb weight is the weight of a vehicle without passengers or cargo but with all of the components needed for the vehicle to properly function including coolant, gas, oil and other standard equipment. Make sure all your fluids are full, have it towed to a dump with scales (so you don't use any gas) and weigh it, without you in it.

    Yeah, certified scales are your best bet.

    FWIW, my 1995 C2500 standard cab, long bed, 350, 4L60E is 4400 pounds. That's with no cargo, no driver or passengers, and all fluids (including gas tank) full.
