A bunch! This one will be much lighter when I am done. I will be lowering the front end, yes I know its a tbar, but I found out how to do it right, and still back halving it. ANyone know what it weighs as it stands? The tires are MT drag slicks for the track, 31x 16.5 x 15

Whew! that would kill me, I had a hard enough time making a kustom throttle body spacer much less that. U mean the stock weight right? about 3,185 +/-. It really depnds on what it has added from the factory. How much weight are u shaving off of it? Those are killer tires, U love those.

Well I am not 100% sure. It will be back halved, the AC system, ducting, Radio, factory seats, and anything else that is not needed will be removed. The radiator is swapped out to aluminum, part of the bed floor will be removed, fuel tank, rear bumper etc...... Now I will be adding a 900+ LBS diesel to the front end, and the tranny is about 250 LBS as well, so I will be a little heavier than it was stock, I am sure. 3100 sounds a little low, are you pretty sure of that number?

I'm not exact but that is what mine weighs and the pic U posted is Identical to mine except the bed rail caps which are Factory. But I am pretty close though. Check inside the fuel door. There's a sticker in there on the lid and it has the weight from the factory along with tire size. Sounds like ur shaving and stripping it down to the bare frame. Are U?

Are you selling any of the interior? I might be interested in the seats and center counsel.

Just swung a deal today with Turbonetics. I will be running a super 72 turbo on the truck. That is a great big honkin turbo, and I will probably need a little NOS to spool it, but once it lights........hang on. LOL
