Mine weighed 5300 with me in it. I can't think of much that would affect weight. Have a 300, T18, 205, D44& 60. No carpeting, but have a tool box, front and rear hitches and a channel iron bumper. The 33" swampers are surprisingly heavy. I tried a borrowed set of 40" Hawgs for fitment, and they were barely heavier.

I was at 6200 pounds before the lift and all that mess. I guess about 7000 now, but don't know for certain. I'm gonna see if I have time to get it on the scale next time I'm down at Pro's. His dump scale is only a mile from his house.

sweet....i forgot to mention, im missing my jack, sunvisors...and washer resevoir as well....also all the other uselss junk that was hanging on my junk

ramboss...if you put the hood and the box on it, and run an exhaust, i would guess you would be right around 5k

i wish i could get mine below 5500 while still carrying my winch, rear bumper, tailgate, toolbox full of tools, chains, straps, hilift and my fuel tank...maybe if i gutted the bed and did a glass front clip, alum radiator, alum head, and completely gutted the cab

the last time i had the "rattletrap" over the scales, it was 9,870 lbs with me in it, and both tanks full.
now this ain't no ordinary 1988 4X4 though. there is a 8 inch c channel steel front bumper, reinforced with 1/2 inch steel plate gussets, home made snow plow frame, front class 3 receiver, Ramsey 12,000 lb winch on removable hitch mount, Dana 60 front diff, 6 leaf 4 inch reverse arch front springs with 1/2 inch thick "H" shackle kits, dual steering stabilizers on home made mounting brackets, rear suspension is done with a 3 inch lift single add-a-leaf and dual helper springs. then there are the kicker shocks that run horizontal to the frame to help with axle wrap. tires are 36 inch B.F.G. mud terrain radials on 9.75X16.5 American racing outlaw II rims. in the engine bay, there is a supercooler trans cooler, and a power steering cooler added in front of the radiator. up top of the 7.3 diesel, is the banks turbo, and the C6 trans has a bigger pan for extra oil capacity. in the cab, there is a set of captains chair buckets, center console, and about 25 lbs of electronics. behind the seats on the back wall of the cab is a cab organizer full of various tools and other junk. on the bed is a homemade back rack, with a code 3 light bar on top, and the exhaust stacks mounted to it. in the bed, there is a full aluminum headboard, then a 4ft X 3ft X 2ft gang box with assorted flags, banners,hoses, brushes, and other junk. then there is a 3ft X 2ft X 1ft military ammo box with 400 ft of 5/16 case hardened chain in it. (8 50ft lengths) mounted on the inside of the bed is the full size spare tire, with the bed rails topped off with full length aluminum caps. under the back is another homemade class 3 hitch, followed by a rear step bumper. i am sure i forgot some things, but you get the idea.

I just happen to have a scale on the farm. I have a buddy stopping by after dinner today to help me put my box back on. I should do a before box weight, with box, with bumpers and then with exahust and see what the differences are.

I'm not sure how much heavier it is than post '73 metal. I got my license an registration for it yesterday and it says it weighs 3495 on the registration slip. I'll know more later on today. I do know that the box isn't light.

Just a bit over 6300# with the boggers on the steel rims. Everything else is stock of course. Mostly

Oh yeah i forgot to mention that i removed the rear brakes as well, that in itself shed about 50-70lbs, everything but the backingplate for the drum and wheel cyclinders were removed.
