Like you, the nearest scale is a hike and a half, thats why I started the other thread.
The ARE shell weighs 150. It's for the short crew cab bed and has a 6" rise. Still need to get a couple bales of hay and a mountain bike in there (no not at the same time) so flip back wasn't feasible.

Both truck scales are a 90-105 mile round trip.

We've found truck scales available to use for a modest price at a nearby rock quarry and at a nearby landfill. Besides being closer to home I feel like they are a little bit less intimidating for the unseasoned traveler.
