I took the Suburban to the CAT scale yesterday. As weighted with driver, tools, and junk it was 3260 front, 3300 rear, 6560 total. Since it wasn't empty, I went home and subtracted the weights of all the items inside and subtracted them from the appropriate axles. Completely empty (no driver no tools) but with a full diesel tank the net weight is 3030 front and 3210 rear for 6240lbs. Ratings for my specific model from the spec sheet are 3750 FAWR (spring limited from 4250), 6000 RAWR, 8600 GVWR, 14500 GCVWR. The full tank of diesel represents 292lbs hanging out a few feet behind the rear axle.
