    3322 lbs over the front wheels, 2618 lbs over the rear wheels. Thats in 'street' trim with a full tank and me in it. Total weight was 5940 lbs.

    I thoight it would be closer to 6200 or so after swapping in the 6.2 diesel, the D60 and the 39.5" TSL's...doesn't look like it gained as much as I thought.

    The cage will probably weigh less than the hardtop so in 'trail' trim I should actually be lighter. HT, doors and tailgate combine for approx 500 lbs.

    Wheeling topless is the best.../forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have tube on order through my work. The next time they order round tubing of any sort my order will be included. Hopefully we need some round stuff soon, I'm getting a little antsy.

    Not exactly a recipe for light weight...I'm still surprised it wasn't heavier. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I'm surprised your stock (appearing) K5 weighs as much as it does.

    Hey Rene, just FYI regarding trail trim and being lighter: when I got back from EJS this spring, I took all the goodies out of the back of my K5 and weighed them; this included spare/shovel/hi-lift/CO2 tank/tools/spare axles/tierod/extra fluids/water and the like... ended up with 470lbs... /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Including my 40" spare I carry less than 300 lbs of trail junk with me...

    The scales I used are on my way home from work so when I get the cage done I'll weigh it again, then prolly at least once in 'trail trim' with tools and junk.

    Rene

    I'm waiting to get the D60 in the front.

    I'll probley put bumpers, winch, sliders, and maybe internal cage.

    Wouldn't be suprised to see somewhere around 8000#s.

    I guess I'll just have to make running starts to go rock crawling. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    My Burb & util trailer weight in at ~7700 empty. The trailer's just a cut-down 1/2-ton frame w/box, bedliner, & a 12-bolt. Even if I figure it at a generous 1700lbs, the Burb is still a whopping 6000lbs /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    A 6,000 lb burb isn't that heavy. I estimate my K10 shortbox with 1 tons and a 4 speed at 6,000. One of these days I'll weigh it.
