I don't think they weigh that much. When I had my bed off a couple months ago, me and my dad could move it around pretty easily. So maybe 150-200lbs. max.

Yeah i know its easy to move bcause mine is off for the stock floor we are doing to it. I put new slam bags in the rear with the 5 link and it holds the frame up some which the cab isnt on and will bring it down and i just needed to know the bed weight i appreciate it. I thought it was close to 300 pounds on a guess

HAHA we had four people to lift a dually bed onto a Ford dually truck jacked up 7 inches. In the end we just used some chain and a backhoe to put it on. As for the S10 bed, 2 people should be ample.

I KNOW 2 PEOPLE CAN PICK IT UP LOL. ive taken my bed off a few times in my day. I just was curious of the over all weight of the bed. I know its not hard to lift the bed.

Several years ago, a member on our forum was looking to get carbon fiber beds made for our trucks (syclones). He wanted to know how heavy the bed was to see how much weight savings could be had. Ergo, I stepped up to the plate:


"198 pound bed. Yes, the weight of the saw horses was tared... "


"32.5 pound tailgate."

The top pic is the bed only, no tailgate or rollpan. The cladding is prolly adds about 30-40 pounds to the weight. And no carbon fiber beds ever materialized...
