My 48 F-1 weighs 3380 with me and 22 gallons of gas. Oops, there I go adding my 2wd to the 4wd stuff again.

F-250 is 6,440lbs with me and one tank of fuel. My new trail rig project, '79 F-150 Tube flatbed with lots of other tube work, Windsor motor, Np435, 203/205 combo, D44, 9", 33x13.50 LTB's, winches f/r, should be under 5,000....I hope.

mustange70 has a good reputation on FTE.mustange70 has a good reputation on FTE.
Actually yes they do, along with a complete one piece fiberglass front clip as well, and i think the total weight comes in between 100-200lbs completly assembled.

taking the bed off and making a tube or flatbed would definately cut weight, but it might cut traction too.

Yup, tube chassis from the cab back is the way to go

whats wrong with losing the weight while your poor, then building the bigger motor later when funds permit

Weight is still weight when your trying to haul it up vertical rock ledges. I've been a big-block man all my life, but I'm puting a windsor motor in this truck strictly for weight savings.

True but TFS heads are a double gain cause they loose weight, and gain hp.

I'm sure plenty of people will disagree with me but IMO unless you're building a dedicated mud dragger like Rob has the little bit of weight you'll save by going to a small block vs a big block isn't going to make a difference in your wheeling. Even at that (as Rob has proven) the extra weight of the big block will MORE than make up for itself with the gain in horsepower. I mean really, how much weight difference are we talking here, a couple hundred pounds? That's a buddy riding shotgun and I don't see very many of us kicking people out of the passenger's seat to save a few pounds. I'm not knocking people who build light rigs, just saying that I think a lot of times people go overboard with weight savings when they don't need to.
