I am curious as to what everyones Lightning weighs. For the guys that had weighed theirs would you mind posting the weights. Could you also mention if it was street trim or race trim with a list of everything you removed.
My Lightning weighs 4600/4700 lbs in Street/Race trim with nothing changed but my four BAJA rims.

:bigtuThanks, Bob

Last time I weighed mine with the Baja rims all the way around it was around 4700, but haven't weighed it with the Bogarts yet. With the 20's on it's just over 4900. I don't have anything removed other then the front sway bar.

I'll post up after spookfest what mine weighs in at. Last time I weighed it it was 4350lbs. That was in street trim with 18's and tailgate on, 1/2 tank of fuel, cooler in the back full of ice and drinks. I have removed more weight since the last weigh in, but my race trim should be about 4000lbs (without me in it).

Interested in what others are weighing in at.
