404 Killeraxels - Weighty Question

Anyone know roughly what a fully kitted out front killeraxel weighs ? (Thats with discs, callipers and hummer stud pattern adapter.)

and

Same question applies for a similar spec rear steering killeraxel ?

Then just for the sake of it....

Roughly what would a 44/18.5 Gateway gumbo mudder on a hummer rim weigh ?

Reason
I'm gonna build a buggy which needs to weigh a minimum of 2.5 tonnes but I dont really want to go much over it if at all.
So I need to know how much weight I'll have spare after the loaded axels then go from there.

Thanks

Joe

404 axle weight

Hi there.

Mog axles under our Alfaster (see the pic) weighted 240kg(front axle) with original drum brakes and steering parts. Discs maybe made them lighter, but "big" steering cylinder gives more.

Tyres 44/18.5-16.5" Super Swamper TSL on home made 14x16.5" steel wheels with mercedes centers and tubes weighs about 90-95kg each. So roughly it's 400kg on tyres and 500kg axles. Then the rest on top of that. Alfaster weighs about 1700-1800kg.
