Just wondering how much your blazer weighs? Some have heavy bumpers and axles. Others are full of survival gear. Spec sheets show blazers weighing from low of 3,677lbs in 1971 and 1972 to a high of 4,778 in 1989. If anybody has access to a truck scale and wants to weight their blazers post up your numbers! If you can weigh front and rear axles separately and share your f/r bias too!
mine is gonna loose some weight soon…. gonna cut fenders , 1/4 panels and maybe trim the front bumper too… would be interresting to know what it weighs though
My 77 weighed in at a porky 5400 or so. Lot of added weight with 2 auxillary fuel tanks, steel rack on top, steel spare tire rack with 2 gas cans, light bar, push bar, axle truss out of 3/16 steel with large skid plate, double carpeted interior, 33 inch tires on alum wheels.

i”ll have to get it out at night and take it to the truck scale when i get it running… Couldn”t you just weigh all the parts that are in your garage?
Mine weighed 5280lbs as it came from the military with the 6.2L diesel, TH400, and 33″ tires on 1/2ton axles.My dad had an “87 with 305tbi and SM465 trans, 37″ GY MTR”s, 1/2 ton axles. Wasn”t really loaded down with much gear and his weighed in at about 5000lbs.I hauled a 90” 3/4ton 4×4 suburban to the salvage yard and according to their scales it weighed about 5500lbs.Just for curiosity/comparison, my “06 SuperDuty weighs 7800lbs. and our 18” car hauler weighs 3000lbs.
Couldn”t you just weigh all the parts that are in your garage? har har har. i took 800 lbs to the scrap yard after i did the body, but then added new steel and a 14 bolt rear, and a sm465/205, so who knows really. i”ll weigh it sometime soon.

Spec sheets show blazers weighing from low of 3,677lbs in 1971 and 1972 to a high of 4,778 in 1989.I assume that you are using coloradok5″s online spec sheet (http://coloradok5.com/specs.shtml)? Problem is, when it comes to the weights, that page is total bullcrap. Here is a PM that I sent to Doppler back in August of last year:”I told you the plate on my “78 didn”t lie!!!!Here”s a 1st gen tag…5,850 lbs:http://imgs.inkfrog.com/pix/monaco/72ChevyK5_92k_vin.JPGhttp://houston.craigslist.org/ctd/2534278221.htmlLook at the “69-“72 specs……..way off!http://coloradok5.com/specs.shtml#1969I knew my brain remembered my “78 as being way heavier. Their page shows the “78 as being 3,928 lbs. There”s no way in holy hell my “78 weighed that. I remember seeing on the tag something close to 6,000 pounds. I wish your truck had the original tags on it still. In fact, I wish my “84 had the tags too.”If anybody has access to a truck scale and wants to weight their blazers post up your numbers!I plan on doing this sometime this year.
