pritch1 Posted August 22, 2006 Share Posted August 22, 2006 Well after another weekend stuck in the mud watching one particular, much lighter 4x4 drive past again and again i feel that it is time my truck went on a little diet. As i have a spare week looming with little to do and not much money, im feeling it might be a good time to have a tinker and maby remove some parts. my ideas were: 1. Inner wings i no longer really have a need for them as the wings are supported by wing bars (as in extended cab 90 in the members vehicle section). Could i replace these with some lighter alluminium or plastic. 2. Rubber mats - they need to go anyway as they are nackered some thinking of painting the floor with some of that plasti cote stuff. 3. The steering guard has been on for ages origionally for when i used to bend the track rod. I have now upgraded to sumo bars so does anyone run without a steering guard and manange not to bend bits. i know its heavy as i have had to weld some extra plate in it whem the car was lifted. 4.Tail gate is not doing alot now as i have waffle boards and a spare filling the gap so thats gonna go. 5, Remove all thos unused brackets as they collect alot of mud and dont do much else. these were just a few ideas know they may not loose much weight but its a start . So apart from that what else have you done to reduce weight any one any bright ideas. i know lots of expencive ways of doing it but im looking for things that people forget. thanks alot ps. its a ninety just incase you didnt guess.
