Yow Amigo's,

Anyone could tell me what would be the weight of the front when I put jack under the forward chassis in order to raise both wheels at the same time??? My jack seem to hit the overload!!!

Thanks for your answers!

Dutch, I don't know for certain but I think it would be safe to assume you are lifting close to 1500 kg.

I think the 4x4 Quad cab has a curb weight of about 5300 to 5500 pounds and the front weighs more than the rear.

There should be a data plate in the front driver side door jam that gives you that info.

No labels on the truck will show its weight. To answer the question, 1500kg sounds 'bout right. A 3-ton jack should be more than enough. What type jack are you using?

Hey Mike, Sounds reasonable! Jack type= OMCN 255 (trolly-type jack)Which should just take under 1500KG. Went back to suppliers technical support and they told me how to tweek the hydraulic plunger to increase jack power!

Dave the one time I was able to get my truck weighed the scale was showing 5760ish and no I wasn't in the truck or on the scale, it'd been definately over 6000 then! LOL
