The front sway bar can easily be removed saving about 25LBs.....I couldnt tell it was gone though I didnt take the truck on any real twisty roads.....and the weight comes off the front as a plus..

I'm gonna shave some more tonight and see what I can get to measure for tomorrow guys. Hope this weekend to get a couple runs on the road with a RC and see how she fairs being lightened.
I do know the heavy ass driveshafts are way more than a RC alum one

The stock bedcover with wing is pretty heavy, I'm curious to know the weight of that and the passenger and rear seats. I think you can shave off well over 400lbs by removing bedcover, spare, tailgate, and all seats cept bench and driver. Plus the difference between your stock tires/rims vs dragradials/rims. BTW, very good thread.

IIRC Flying Low did a 12.7@108 (backed up with numerous 12.8 - 13.0 passes) with only exhaust, flash, and drop in filter, and stock tires/rims aswell. But he was in a negative DA and could cut rediculously good 1.86 60ft times with the stock tires and rims. So it can be done.
