Looking to finally weigh my rig to dial in suspension and for towing reasons. Anyone know where a scale is near Folsom CA?

Feed stores that sell hay by the ton will have scales as well, if you get them when they aren't busy you could likely be able to weigh a few times to get front and rear measures.  It may cost you about $10 dollars if they do DMV weight certification, and it may cost you nothing.  If there is a county dump/transfer station nearby, you can weigh your Runner there as well.

A long time ago when I bothered with recycling newspapers by driving in to the recycling center, they weighed my car before and after dropping off the papers...............

what about the chp weighstation?

I weighed my car there when I changed my duty station... although they might have just helped out a military member -- not sure if they would do that for everyone

Any truck scale will be able to take care of you, try the old fashioned Yellow pages.

Try the local landfill.  I know placer county landfill gives you a weight if you pay for it.  Think its $12 or so.

Thats what I did. However, they don't close often in Ca. Other  than that most truck stops should have a scale.
