You can't weigh a truck without the body.

I converted a b5m to the t5m.... using the b5m front axle what spacers are you guys using on the front axle to get correct width? The t5m axles are not due in until late April. Thanks!

Try the front axle from the 22T. That's what I used when I made my T5 a year ago. They are a little long so you may have to add a spacer before the wheel nut. I did at first then threaded them deeper.

Well he did and has a picture to prove that he did it too.

I think I know what you were trying to imply, you would prefer to know the weight with the body on the truck.

Has anybody seen a list of common parts that the T5M shares with the B5M?

outside of the obvious arms, towers, driveshafts, front axles, shocks, turnbuckles, body mounts, chassis and center cradle....it should share everything else.

disclaimer: I may have missed a thing or 2

I was definitely several deep when I made that post. However you're right, I meant give an official weight without the gigantic stadium truck body.
