Im trying to decide between a toy truck and a sammi for my next rig.
How light can toys go? Im not talking tub buggy but close to it is fine.

From what I've seen on here and experienced:

A built Toy with a full body, flat bed, and internal cage can run 4000-5500 lbs.
A Toy built with light in mind (like the guys on Azrckcrawler's site) Probably weigh anywhere from 3500 to 4000. Tack on a thousand pounds if your in that group, and your name is PMurf. :flipoff2:
A full-on toy buggy, which is still leaf sprung and what not, probably runs 3200-3500. :confused:

Ask Chris Geiger (http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=51639&highlight=maximum+sawzall)
And ROKTOY (http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=79414&highlight=buggy)

I'm shooting for the 3500-4000 range. Only keeping the firewall, 50% of the factory frame and outer fenders and an unbraced hood. Also running 350/465/toy/D300, full width D44 adn full width 9".

my truck on 38's with an exo'd cab(4runner) anddual cases/toy axles without doors was 3440. now with only the front clip and firewall and cage/rear tube frame, leafs all the way around, i am thinking closer to 3100. AFAIK, gieger is right around 28hundo?
sammys cut several hundred pounds with their AL engines and smaller tranny's and tcases. both can be light and built right, and either is a great choice.......hth
