I actually dont know what Crawler80 currently weighs. I forgot to stop by the trucker weight scale last night when I was near my buddies shop. There's one I can roll up and weigh myself really easy and its open 24/7 but it's better when its after hours so I don't hold up actual truckers trying to weigh their stuff.Once you get over denting the sides, not only will your 80 perform as well, if not better than your mini, you’ll be more comfy and look way more cool.... do you know for sure your rig is over 7k loaded. Mine is fully armored (by most standards anyway) and tips the scale at about 5800 unloaded. I like my set up with the spacers because I’m left with the option of letting it down an inch if I choose to when I’m too old to climb up in the cockpit. Haha I’m not towering giant.
I know for a fact that my Turbo80 weighed in at 7200 lbs because I weighed it.
4x4labs front and rear bumpers with the same swings with but on 35s. Dual DIY drawers I made with a sh... ton of spare parts and my 75qt DZ Dometic.
junkyard special heavy ass sliders and iron pig cross members
spare front and rear drive shafts
extra spindle, knuckle kit with bearings, alternator, starter, ecu, maf, ignitor, hoses, spark, plugs, oil, gear, atf, brake fluid etc. I got enough spare parts to almost build a 2nd 80. I'm weird about having spare parts because I always finding something that breaks.
Dual batts and inverter
Turbo 80 was at 3/4 tank gas (main) and empty on the LRA Aux.
This crap was left at home:
