I recall each housing weighing somewhere around 1600lbs.SukaB said:Wondering if anyone knows close to approx weight for front and rear complete off A 5-ton.
I'm trying to figure out how many pair I can put on trailer and bring home from Cali.
I am no rocket scientist and I would never claim to know shit about rockwells but my intuition tells me that you are not going to find 2 1/2 ton rockwells in the back of a 5 ton truck.SukaB said:2-1/2 ton rockwells are all the same as far as the style/weight/application that came out of the back of the 5-ton troop carrier military truck?
TheRipper said:5 tons are about $1200 a piece.I put a post about it a while back and got some good info.I am fixing to start a 4 seater buggy with 5 ton's.They are the same width as 2 1/2 ton but the tubes and axles and third member are larger.I believe the tubes are 2" larger around.I am going to try and find some 60" tires for it maybe not decided yet.
Please stop using math to confuse yourself. There are 2.5T trucks, such as the M35 and related ilk, and then the 5 ton trucks, which are M54's and whatnot. The fact that they are twin screw rears, or that each has a specific weight rating, doesn't change that the axles themselves are called 2.5 ton or 5 ton in deference to the vehicles they came on.SukaB said:The actual 5 ton troop truck dual axle rear's,two equalling 5 ton capacity...
What about a non-narrowed front Steve? (no brakes is fine we can all weigh pinion brakes or guess).steve gerstner said:I am listing this info. for future use. These weights are done with an electronic scale. 2 1/2 ton front, 100% complete stock, 842 lbs., narrowed front with no brakes 682 lbs. The rear 100% stock 692 lbs. and with the brakes removed, 532 lbs. steve differential eng. inc.
day-um... thats really not THAT much more than a complete D60/ff14b. I sooo want to built a rockwell-equipped buggy. :grin: 2 inch shafts + 53" michelins would be the shizzle.steve gerstner said:2 1/2 ton front, narrowed front with no brakes 662 lbs. The rear with the brakes removed, 532 lbs.
The tires is where the weight makes so much difference if you run the military tires.Them 53's are around 300 lbs each and the 48's are around 225 each.jekbrown said:day-um... thats really not THAT much more than a complete D60/ff14b.
