Not sure how other people got them, but If I had one to play with, there is plenty to remove. Just look and think of structure and what is needed or not.
Do you know if they have stock style fiberglass hoods? It will be interesting to see how light I can make it.I have an AAR fiberglass bumper/airdamp, it comes out to about 10 lbs lighter than factory setup, they got fiberglass hoods too, fiberglass roll pan will likely lighten the truck up even more so. No OEM style fiberglass fenders that I've seen other than the ones for like a pre-runner truck. none the less there is still loads of weight to be lost on these trucks can remove inner fenders though they are fairly light but if your goign for track duty why not! lol
Wow I was hoping to get it down to 3,000 also. Well I guess that means we will just have to make up for the weight with power!with mine, regular cab, shortbed.. I removed everything from the behind the dash not needed. Heater box,electronics,wiring etc, I still had a stock carpet, an 8 pt roll bar kit, APC race seats, stock front bumper, rear steel roll pan, 8 3/4 rear, 440, with aluminum heads and intake, Hooker headers, 727, driveshaft safety loop, homebuilt s/s 16 gallon fuel cell,all factory glass and hood, aluminum wheels, etc,etc,etc.. I was VERY surprised when it crossed the scale at 3380.. I was hoping for 3000. 3200 tops.. Thats was without me in it..Factory it was a 4cyl,5spd truck..2880...
Oh for sure, the fuel cell and battery will be mounded in the bed. Planing on running the Lincoln Mark VIII fan, I had one for my r/t but it hit the water pump pulley. Even after shaving it down, now I wish I would of kept it but there not expensive to pick up.Dont forget to move the battery to the back of the truck and ditch the clutch fan for an electric setup(with that big firebreather under the hood you might not have a choice but to run electric anyway.)
