    Anyone know how much the complete K5 tub weighs or how much just the rolling chassis weighs?

    I'm not sure about a fully loaded one with interior and carpets etc,installed--but the ones I have scrapped usually weigh in at about 500 lbs for the body,and about 400 for the frame (no axles attached),of course this figure is for rotted out hulks from new england--your mileage may vary! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Bare 74 blazer tub with hardtop on a roller (10 bolts) plus one door shell/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif weighed 2400 lbs. It was on a mix of tires around the 31" size on steel rims. It did have a fuel tank with an unkown quantity of liquid something or other in it. It had a steering column too and the front glass.

    No motor, tranny, T-case, shafts, interior, front clip, tailgate, doors etc etc.

    That was my guesstimate based on another blazer that was much more complete that I did get onto the scales.
