Does anyone know about how much a regular steel bed weighs?

I know their not that heavy, but I am considering buying building a utility body for my 4x4. It'll be heavier for sure, but I want to try not to add too much weight and throw the suspension off/ eat up all my gvwr. Utility body is not worth much if you cant put anything in it.
