    Im am trying to figure the best cam spec for my truck and i need the weight of it. I have a 72 swb4x4 with stock running gear and small block. I run 35 in claws. I cant weigh it because it doesnt drive now and the bed is off.

    <font color=blue>Mine weighed 4600 with 1/2 a tank of gas and me in it. It has a iron-head 350, 465/205, 14ff with disks, a d44 front, soft top, 15x10 wheels and 36" Swampers. I thought it would weigh more, I guess thats all the bondo where there should be metal /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif thats making it lighter.

    Truck. Do a search on the second gen board, there was a post several months ago and a lot of people replied with their weights. If I remember correctly, some of the guys with 1ton running gear were near 6000#
