    Don't have a clue what it weighs but it was made out of 2" DOM, along with the sliders, front and rear bumper. All done by Hartley Truck and Tubing, or Metal Melter on here. Here are a few more pics in case you haven't seen any of the other pics of it.

    This way when I get really stupid and the entire body is trashed after runs with the sheet metal gang then I can just buggy it like Mr. Fox and the ORD crew. Just add some more DOM, motor mounts, and were there.
