I don't like you anymore LOL I still want to do this swap......


You will be back on my good side when you complete this and give us all the details so I can see if I still want this.....:)

Question 1: What is the weight of the 2.5 axle and tires?


That is all for now :bounce:

Midnight, I have the PVC inserts. I don't really like the idea of drilling holes in it to shed a pound as per that link.. other than not not much can be done. PVC is lighter than the metal cage inserts I've seen for sale tho.

Burns, what if I painted the truck lime green? :p lol.
Tires are around 130 I think. Wheels are 62 each. Axle debraked is supposed to be about 690 if I remember right. So with steering and all together I roughly have 2,300lbs of axles, tires, and wheels.
Once the trucks done ill have it weighed to see what the whole kabooble is.

Anyone ever used dom tube as misalihnment spacers? I forgot to get some and think tube might be easier.

It will work, just keep in mind you won't get as much misalignment as the machined spacers since they don't have a taper. If you don't need a lot of misalignment then nothing to worry about.

Thanks man. Yea I'm definitely going big lol. I'm mad I missed the trip! But I just couldn't go, to many things going on needed to get done.

The cage is currently being bent up. My buddy has some tech guy over right now showing him tips and tricks for his new bender and the computer program.
Misalinment spacers and my bolts are in so the 4 links will be started soon also
