There is alot of heavy parts on these trucks! Don't realize how much until I put in stinker's bushings! The calipers are heavy the rotors are heavy the lower control arms are heavy! These trucks could be lightened up quite a bit !

I think the factory hitch weighs 57 lbs.
Wheel and tire combo 81 lbs.
Tailgate around 60 lbs.
Factory tonneau and spoiler about 110 lbs.
These should be close, I am sure someone will help with the actual weights.

well boys i got the ultimate weight loose. Put your engine in a normal ram 1500 frame lol. Over 800 pds forsure. My quad cab with a srt10 engine auto trans that only has cats removed, intake, exhaust and a b&m flash chirps the hell outta the tires when it shifts into 3rd on 305/40/22 tires. itll spin uncontrolably if you floor it in 2nd also

Dont worry my friend. It could happen still. I have every single piece of wiring for a RC and i also have a driveshaft already for a RC also. Im gonna have some fun with the quad cab for a bit but ive been keepin an eye out for a clean RC. This project started off as kinda a last minute thing since we had the engine, but now that im balls deep im having lots of fun. Gotta work some kinks out of this project first though and get it to the track.

When I use the slicks to get those great 60' times it starts shelling rear ends like crazy. BUT I have not given up, I still want my 11.25 1/4 mile.
