How Much Does a Ford F350 Dually Weigh?


How Much Does a Ford F350 Dually Weigh

As a Ford F350 Dually (Super Duty) owner you might be looking for information on how much it weighs. Perhaps you are going to be carrying a large load, or pulling a trailer, and need to calculate what the payload capacity is once the GVWR and curb weight has been taken into account.

What I’ve done here is offer some very rough guidance on the Ford F350 Dually weight, having looked at various online specs and forums.

Here are 10 examples of what a Ford F350 Dually weighs based on forum responses I have seen on the web today.

  • 1988 F350 Crew Cab 2WD Dually Long Bed – 7,800 (empty)
  • 1988 F350 Dually 7.3 IDI Super Cab Long Bed – 10,000 pounds (empty)
  • 1999 F350 Dually Diesel – 8,000 pounds (with loaded tool box)
  • 2012 Ford F350 – 7,023 pounds empty
  • 2013 F350 Lariat – 8,700 pounds (with extensive add-ons)
  • 2014 Short Wheel Base Lariat – 7,500 pounds (empty)
  • 2016 F350 XL – 6,010 pounds (empty)
  • 2016 F-350 Lariat – 7,460 pounds (empty)
  • 2017 Ford F-350 XL Super Duty 4×4 Crew Cab Long Bed DRW – 7,378 pounds (empty)
  • 2018 Ford F350 Super Duty – 8,060 pounds (empty)

Above I have tried where possible to list the curb weights, in other words when it’s empty of any load or passengers. I did think it was also useful to add in some other weights where the owners of the trucks have done their own modifications.

So, if we look at an average of those Ford F350 Dually weights where I’ve found the curb weights (in other words when empty), we’re left with a figure that looks something like this:

Q: How Much Does an F350 Dually Weigh?
A: The curb weight is around 7,500 pounds.

Curb weight is how much a truck weighs when it’s free of any load, baggage, cargo, or people. It’s a common weight metric that the dealers will advertise on the truck’s spec when up for sale.

Before you simply take my word for it, there are always going to be variations in the weight of your specific Ford F350 Dually, depending on the exact spec, year, and model you’ve got, so only take the above average as guidance only.

But, depending on the individual configurations and modifications that might have been done, could mean that your Ford F350 Dually weighs a lot of different – especially if you bought it used and it’s had some previous modifications and adds-on.

If you want to know exactly how much your Ford F350 Dually weighs then you should consult your owner’s manual, talk to the dealer, or do your own online research as I can’t possibly give you Ford F350 Dually weight variations for all models and years in this brief overview.

Another way to ascertain the Ford F350 Dually weight is to take a look at the GVWR (click here for a definition) and payload stickers that are typically found in the driver’s door jamb.

The calculation to follow is:

GVWR – Payload Capacity = Truck Weight 

To use that calculation in a real-world example, let’s say the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) of your Ford F350 Dually comes in at 9,200 pounds, with a payload capacity of 1,900 pounds.

You would subtract 1,900 pounds from 9,200 pounds, which would then give you 7,300 pounds of empty weight – in other words the curb weight of your Ford F350 Dually as it was when it left the factory floor.

How Much Can a F350 Dually Carry and Hold in the Bed?

This is where you need to aware of the differences between GVWR, payload, curb weight, and towing capacities.

I’ve put together guidelines which help you calculate how much a F350 Dually can carry, and you can read that in this guide to payloads, but it’s actually pretty straightforward.

This is how you know how much it can hold in the bed and carry in 3 simple steps:

  1. Get the GVWR maximum (should be in the truck door somewhere)
  2. Get the curb weight (you can calculate that using the earlier method above)
  3. Now calculate how much you can carry with this equation below

GVWR – Curb Weight = Truck Payload Capacity

Does the F350 Dually Weigh More than the F150 and F250?

Yes, it does, and the reason being is that it is designed to handle more weight itself than the F150 and F250 range. To do so, it needs to be heaver with an increase in weight.

Why Weight Knowledge is Important?

No matter what type of truck you own, if you’re planning on towing or carrying large and heavy loads, you need to be up to speed with your weights.

That means understanding the differences between GVWR and GCWR, knowing what your payload capacity is, and ultimately understand how much your truck weighs at the curb.

If you don’t know all this and get it wrong, you can not only damage your truck, but also be a danger on the road as stopping distances will get longer, and brakes can even fail.

Don’t be that guy and please be safe.
