You should know the actual weight of your fully-loaded off-road vehicle. A big reason is to make sure you aren’t exceeding the maximum rating. You will also need the loaded weight before modifying the suspension and setting tire pressures.
A convenient way to weigh your vehicle is to use a Cat Scale. They are widely available and open to the public.
You roll onto the scale with your front axle on the front pad and your rear axle on the middle pad. There are bright yellow lines around each pad; if you are towing a trailer, stop that axle on the rear pad.
Enter the scale number into the app and follow the instructions. The number is written on the call box, it will be higher than your roof, so look up high.
Find a Scale
Also, install the Cat Scale app so you can locate a scale near you. Many are at fuel stops, so you can weigh just after you fill your tank and jerrycans.
We are planning some suspension upgrades, new wheels, and tires for Campbell. Using the scales helps us have an accurate weight to use for the new modifications.
