    Does any one know exactly how much the hard top on my 77k5 weighs. I am rigging up a hoist system and need to know weight for rope selection.
    My guess is about 200 pounds.

    Do a search on his topic or like someone said look in the tech section. Steve our fearless leader did a write up on this!

    Caution!!!!!!!! You will suffer from "Large Garge Envy!"

    Its not too bad...i was at a junkyard with a friend a few weeks ago and there was a 2Wd K5 there with the top on but no bolts, out of curiosity bent down under it and pushed up on it with my back...wasn't too bad, except it slid off the side rails and tried to kill me...if my friend had supported some of the weight it would be fine. 188 sounds about right.
