    Depending on tires& wheels, bumpers& recovery gear, etc....My 79 shortbox with 44's on steel wheels with heavier..but not HEAVY bumpers, recovery gear in the tool box 1 ton axles weighs about 6800 lbs (without me). For your truck..I would guess around 5500, maybe less.

    I would say between 4500-5000. my 71 with 1-tons, big block, winch, full 35 gallon tank, hurko front bumper, and my lard @$$ weighs in at a hair under 7k.

    I'm not sure if you can just do it by weight. In GA, legal frame height depends on whether your truck is a 1/2, 3/4, or 1 ton. Even though I have 1 ton axles, I think that it's all in your vin # and cannot be changed.
