    8000... you have pretty much the heaviest drivetrain you can get without having a Cummins. :thumb:

    so does the 454 really weigh over 900 pounds?
    i pulled the engine and trans out 2gether by myself and it sure felt like a hell of alot, doesnt even compare 2 the 350,700 i pulled out of my last truck.

    Can i get boggers? can they handle the weight since im going for a very heavy truck

    I suppose it depends on whats bolted to it.. but I thought a complete 454 was supposed to be closer to 650-700 lbs. Lets see...

    14 ff rear axle = 500
    dana 60 front = 550
    40 gallon tank lol = 350 with gas in it
    454 engine = 650
    400 trans = uhhhh.... 200-250? dunno, never really lifted one...
    205 trans case = 200 with the adapter, shifters and crap.

    thats almost 2500 pounds in just drivetrain... throw in driveshafts and nuts and bolts and you're well over 2500 sans fluids. Those boggers are gonna weight about 125 a pop... so there is another 600+ pounds with a spare... bumpers and winch, another 5 hundy... Damn. The answer is: heavy as ****. lol! :thumb:

    The boggers and steelies shouldn't weigh THAT much. I have to push mine around regularly and I'm no superhuman so I don't think they weigh more than 100 pounds. Either way though, 100 pounds in tires isn't gonna make a difference on that heavy of a vehicle :crazy:

    I'm guessing 8-9k total. Basically, your trail rig is gonna weigh as much as my PSD tow rig. :eek1:

    My 39.5x15x15 TSLs on steel rims weigh exactly 123 pounds each... I seriously doubt Boggers weigh less.

    Hmm, our F350 dump, 160" wheelbase with duallies and a 10.5' steel dump bed weighs in at under 7k at the quarry scales (6,740 lbs to be exact). I'm having trouble seeing how a burb, even with the mods listed, would come in almost a ton heavier. Afaik a 3/4 ton max gvw is 9k, and a lot of them are only rated for 7k.

    the 454 w/o tranny should weigh 685... add in the greasy coating and the fluids and I'd say 705 would be pretty close... and the 350 should be around 535.

    I'd bet it'll be about 7800...

    does any one know how much a stock 3/4 ton sub weight? I thought they only weight about 1k more than a stock k5. and if your adding all of those bling parts they don't weight that much more than the parts there replacing.


    http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=139780&highlight=suburban+weight


    according to that thread a 1 ton k5 weights in at 5800lbs and a stock suburban weighed in at 5800lbs so I'm guessing a 1 ton suburban wieghts around 7000lbs give or take. not no 8000 - 9000lbs.

    here's another good thread. I'm just using both of those threads as reference
