    My 1991 Blazer last time it got scaled and a typical trail setup for me:

    350/700R4/241
    30 spline open 10 bolts
    4" Tuff Country lift
    37" Boggers on stock 15x8 steel rims
    Removed hard top, tailgate, and doors
    I think the rear seat was still in there
    Minimal trail gear. High lift, straps, lunch, not much more
    No spare tire
    1/4-1/2 tank gas. I have the bigger tank, but don't remember the gallons. Maybe 32?.
    No carpet or rubber flooring
    Cut front fenders and cut stock front bumper

    2400 lbs front
    1600 lbs rear
    4000 lbs total

    I like the above weight distribution. Recently went to D60/14FF along with 15x10 eight lug wheels. I expect the weight to increase about 200 lbs on both the front and rear. I can give an update when it's finished soon.

    4k lbs K5 blazer ? damn you must have stripped that one big time lol

    :eek1:

    or wait maybe not, guess curb weight of them in 91 was 4 and a half,

    hummm

    i assumed would be more

    hell my 68 c-10 longfleet pickup i had weighed 3850, and my 81 c-10 longfleet pickup i have now weighs freakin 4100

    and thats with the lightened up front suspension components that GM started installing for the 81 model year, they musta made/added something else heavier in 81-up,... or something.., humm...,

    who knows..,,

    lol
