Quick Question - Curb Weight

What's the curb weight on a 2002 Ranger 4x4 with the 4.0L?

And, what is curb weight for that matter? Is that just the weight of the vehicle empty?

curb weight should be a truck with all the fluids. its around 3800-4200 for your truck based on options.

i think, someone will probably prove me wrong. lol

edit one source says 3705 for supercab with 6foot style side bed.

Hmmm.. Guess I'm also looking for the GCWR as well too then.. Basically, I don't doubt that I could put a 6'x12' trailer on the back of the truck and haul it.. It's only going to have a few desks in it.. The problem is renting the trailer.. They might argue with me, so I'm looking for as much ammunition as I can get.

For what its worth, when I dropped of steel at the recycler you have to go over the scale. So I figured it out, minus me the '00 2wd standard cab with the 2.5 and 5 speed was just a shade over 3300lbs.

The GCWR of all 2002 4.0L automatics is 9500 pounds (Manuals 4.0L's are 7000). Your S/C 4x4 weighs about 4000~4200 pounds with driver and fuel but without any additional cargo on board.

my trailer is a 16'Lx6.5'W Car hauler, the actual measurements are 19'L x 86"W? weighs about 1200lbs alone

I dont have any issues pulling it, plenty of power, braking can be some work though.

what are you haulling?

Great! Thanks guys!

I'll be hauling some office furniture down to Kentucky.. I'm debating whether or not I want to take my truck, or just get a 26' box truck to haul the crap down in.. Haven't decided which yet.. Doing some measuring today!

i agree, however, i think the issue here isnt what the truck is capable of but rather what the rental company will allow.

Submitted a request with them last night.. Got an email stating that I could. However, after finding out what exactly I'm hauling today, looks like I'm going to be stuck with a 24' or 26' box truck..

Ah well..
