    I'm getting ready to PCS (move from one military installation to another) so the topic of weight tickets surfaces once again. I was just curious what the empty weight of a Gen 1 Taco is. I think my Gen 2 weighs about 4200lbs empty (I can't remember for sure because I weighed it in '07.

    If your instalation has a recycling center you can go down there and ask them if you can jump on the scale.

    I think the recycling center falls under the Directorate of Logistics?
    Ft Wainwright DOL: 361-7641

    Can't find listings for Ft Richardson (not sure where you are)

    I know where to go to weigh. I was just curious to see how much heavier the '05s and later were compared to the older, yet still very capable and relevant models. To quote the first reply, I don't know anything about Gen 1. Please describe your truck when you reply with a weight, thanks!
