That’s definitely possible. I’m sure they don’t all weigh the same depending on what options they have. I was curious how close that number really is. 400 lbs with you in it doesn’t seem all that close but then again just the winch accessories probably weigh at least a couple hundred if not more. Maybe that 17,214 number is the LTZ version ha.

olive-drab.com lists it as "16,699 lb". Where did you get the 17k number? Also I should have said, I am talking about the A0. I don't know about the later models.
It's in the TM. Table 1-3, Vehicle Weights and Payloads.

Truck, Cargo, M1078
17,770 lbs (8,068 kgs)

OliveDrab.com seems to be edited by people who go by the philosophy "Close enough for government work." I've stopped going to that site, because there is so much incorrect information... and wrong information is worse than no information at all.

Easy way to see what the true weight is, make a run to the dump. With a full tank, and co-pilot we came in at 24,500lbs with the M1090 empty.

Hauled 9tons (est.) of logs the other day. Probably the heaviest load it will see during the time I have it.
60 psi tires, truck felt great loaded.
