    I was wondering if anyone keeps track of the weight that they have added to their trucks? I see some great looking looking trucks set up for the dunes, mudding, rock crawling and the trails. Large bumpers, skids, sliders, winches, bed racks, hi-lift jacks, larger wheels/tires, etc. These trucks are pretty heavy stock and unless you go the supercharger route there is little you can do about the HP to weight ratio. Only option is gearing that I know of.
    So has anybody run across the scales or kept track of the added weight, or how much have you added on. How high can one go before really affecting the performance, and street ability?

    Don't know what mine weighs with the sliders and bed rack with high lift. I know I'll be adding about 115 lbs with the new bumper in a few weeks. I'm still fine with the way it drives and has enough power for me anyway. I didn't buy a sports car. :D
