Default FJ60 Weight

I just got done corner weighing the 60 and figured some of you folks might be interested in what the numbers were...

So... the truck was weighed with the following on board:

- 40 gallons of fuel
- Mead (115lbs)
- Driver in driver's seat (130lbs ( no not me))
- tools (40 lbs)
- Fridge full of beer in the back
- Chili (13lbs)
- Recovery gear in my Wagon Gear tail gate (tree strap, pulley, snatch strap, 4 shackles, tire repair kit, air hose, and a few other random doodads)

Truck setup is as follows:

- Vortec 5.3 conversion
- H55f
- Dual group 31 batteries
- York on board air compressor
- ARB lockers with associated crapola
- XD9000i Winch with synthetic cable
- Custom front winch bumper boxed to be an air tank, three shackles
- 2 x 3 1/4" wall sliders welded to frame
- Custom rear bumper with swingout tire mount and hi lift and two shackles
- inverter with 1 ga wiring
- sub with big amp
- stock interior
- yakima roof rack with bike rails and kayak mounts
- HAM and CB radios
- beefy skid plate for tranny/t case
- stock axle housings
- 35's with steel wheels


So, this is how it sits basically for around town and no camping... it's how I drive it every day.

Weights are as follows:

RR - 1913lbs
LR - 1820lbs
RF - 1200lbs
LF - 1541lbs

Total Rear = 3733lbs
Total Front = 2741lbs

Total = 6474lbs

Cross is 3020lbs or 46.6% which is pretty crummy. It's a wheeling truck though, not a race car.. .plus no ride height adjustment on this rig.

The total surprised me.

Any idea how much less that Vortec weighs over the old 2F? You might be pushing 7k with the old motor....

Titanium bolts will shave a few pounds.

The total does not surprise me much.

I have been running mine over the truck scale this year just to see as well. My 80 in DD mode was exactly 6000 lbs early this year with me in it. Other than that just the regular stuff in back. On my way out of town to CM10 I was over 6600 with me, Porter and light camping gear. Gross vehicle weight for an 80 on stock suspension is 6400 something. I guess that's why I spent most of CM on my bumpstops.

I'm still looking to add a lift, rear bumper, 35's, drawers, then fill drawers with crap, 2nd battery, maybe a roof rack, etc.... So I'm pretty much planning on 7000+ with passengers.

I don't remember if you were around when Paul from Equipt and I were having this conversation during the overnighter. He said the 100 was over 11000lbs if you included the trailer

Anyone know of a truck scale on the south side of Denver? I'd love to find out how much my 80 weighs.

I guess the old 2F was around 750lbs... at least that's what looking around on mud brought up.

The new motor is about 520lbs...

So that's a pretty big difference but not quite enough to get it to 7k. If I hit 7k I'd reeealy feel like a fat a$$. I actually never really thought about the weight savings being good or bad, but I guess it helps.

I honestly thought that it'd be reasonably light untill I weighed it and posted this thread... then I began to realize how much crap is on the thing. I mean it looks pretty empty inside but it's still full of crap. I have no idea how heavy it is when loaded for stuff like our moab desert runs.
