    According to Boyce Equipment the total weight of a COMPLETE Dana 44 is around 240lbs, a COMPLETE Dana 60 is around 505lbs, and a COMPLETE Rockwell 2 1/2 ton steer axle is around 640. The rear Rockwells are a bit lighter, but didn't have a weight on them.

    640 lbs aint to bad... if only that gear ratio was better...

    AFA feeling "stronger" Ive had to man-handle around a ff14b and a D60 by myself a couple of times... just about killed myself (i only weigh about 170-175) but I got the job done. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I wouln't have a problem w/ the 6.17's or whatever the heck is in the 2.5 tons!
    I know what you mean about moving the heavy stuff... I weight 140ish and I got my FF14bolt out of my parts truck and into my Jimmy by myself...w/ no tires on it...
