curb weight and GVW for my truck

I'm having a hard time finding the curb weight, and GVW for my truck.

If you happen to know where I can find the exact numbers for my truck (stock of course) I'd greatly appreciate it

Thanks, it shows the GVW of 8800lbs, but not the curb weight that i could see.
Also shows gross axle weight of 4500lbs for the front (dana 60) and 6084lbs for the rear (dana 70), assuming ya've got the stock LT245/75R16E tires.

Check your state registration. I know in PA it is listed right on the registration mine says 4880 for a reg. cab short bed 1500. and my registered gVW is somewhere around 6500 or so. But I know my actual weight with all my tools and winch and me is 5300 pounds.

It's not on my registration.

'94 reg cab, long box, with a CTD and 47RH tranny, does anyone know the curb weight?

My towing brochure for '96 says 5790 base curb weight for a 4X4 std cab auto with the Cummins. Add to that the weight of any options.
I bet the '94 and '96 are going to be very close.
The towing capacity for your truck with 3.54 gears is 10000# and with 4.10 gears is 11900# again assuming that '94 and '96 are the same.
I hope this helps.

Alright I've got a final answer. I went to a scrap yard across town, and 5 bucks later I found out it was 6,280lbs.
This is without me, empty bed, and 1/4 tank, (9 gallons or 72lbs)
