So I had my Raptor/Nitrous weighed over the weekend on the way to Panamint Springs. I was curious what the weight for the two were.

The Raptor had four people, 3/4 gas and a few items in the bed that couldn't have weighed more than 100lbs.

My toybox had about 75 gallons of fresh water, 20 gallons of gas and empty grey/black tanks. Probably another 500lbs worth of stuff for four people on a three day weekend outing.

The Raptor was 7840lbs.

(4040lbs. front - 4000lbs. max.)
(3840lbs. rear - 3700lbs. max)

The trailer was 6940lbs.

14,820lbs. total weight which looks like I exceeded the limit by 120lbs. In the future I will travel with less fresh water and gas in the trailer.

As for the 650 mile trip. The Raptor performed flawlessly. The trailer did not toss the truck around, brakes were excellent and going over the Tehachapi Pass the Raptor never struggled for power or hunted for the right gear.

1100+ miles total with lots of four wheeling with an average of 9.7MPG.

For anyone looking for a lightweight toy hauler I recently came across these, pretty nice looking trailers and light. Probably big $$ though. https://www.livinlite.com/

Did someone have a question about towing? Oh and it weighed more than 160,000lbs before I attached it to my 38,000lbs rig. Happy towing guys.

I like all those lights on your Raptor. Makes it look bigger than it is.
