    A few weeks ago I stopped in at a rock mart and talked the scale guy into weighing my 75 blazer, when I looked up at was right at 4340 lbs,

    this seems real light, but then again I dont have much of a blazer left and everything is gutted beyond most levels of sanity.

    I keep hereing references to peoples rigs topping in over 6000 lbs, so how much does yours weight?


    now I am just a small block, t-350 and single case with 3/4 tons and a hacked up and tubed blazer,


    I will be going back to a dana 60, and upgrading to some form of a doubler, so just wondering where I will be at then weight wise,


    -thanks

    Full body'd diesel K5 on 1/2 tons. Fully loaded in trail trim with tools, spares, cooler and whatnot i put it at 6200 with me in it. I have weighed it without tools, spares, an empty tank, cooler and other trail junk, though, and am estimating from that measurement.

    No guessing here.....I had my Blazer weighed on 4-Corner Scales at a local race shop:

    L.F. = 1113
    R.F. = 1285
    L.R. = 1297
    R.R. = 1121

    Total weight = 4819 Lbs
    Weight Distribution F/R: 2398 / 2418
    Distribution Percentages: 49.79% / 50.21%

    Configuration:
    1972 Blazer with Factory Hardtop
    35" Tires on Aluminum Wheels
    D44 Front / 12-Bolt Rear axles
    No Carpet - Though the roughly 100Lbs of stereo gear compensates
    1/2 Tank of Fuel in an ~18 Gallon Tank.

    Measurements listed above are without me in the truck...Add another 180 Lbs to the overall weight for that!!!

    My 81 Jimmy fully dressed with cage and bumpers, hardtop, 40's on steel rims, 60/14, 3/4 tank of fuel, and me in it weighed 5940 lbs.

    I can get the trail weight down to 5500 if I pack light though.

    lol, I hope you have a burb or a big wife :D

    If I remember right when I first got my truck it weighed a little over 5,000 pounds. That was and '89 with 32's and the hard top on.

    I have no clue how much it weighs now since there are 40's, steelies, and 1 ton gear underneath it. Good thread though, helps me get in the ballpark.
