t-bucket cab weight

how's it goin guys, im new to this forum but i need some help. is there anyone out there that could give me a link to a website that tells me how much just a t-bucket cab weighs? the reason i need this is my dad pulls TwoWheelDrive pulling trucks and he need to know if a t-bucket cab would be a lighter set up than a fiberglass truck body.ive been looking all day and have come up with nothing i even looked on ebay to see if someone had one weighed for shipping purposes but still have come up with nothing. any help would be great, thanks.

your talking fiberglass right?.. I don't know the exact figure, but any fiberglass t bucket manufacture will have that weight for shipping..

Rod 'n Race in WV sells them. Just give them a call and they'll be able to give you the weight.

ya fiber glass, but i kinda need something i can print out. because in our pulling circuit a pulling truck i allowed to weigh 6200 lbs, but their trying to make it so the t-buckets can only weigh 6000 pounds even which is a major disadvantage in the pulling sport. they claim that the t-buckets weigh less than the fiberglass full bodies, but i looked up how much a full body weighs and they only weigh between 145 and 160lbs depending on the model. which i have a hunch that the t-bucket just the body weighs around that it's self.

I doubt that my Total Performance glass body weighed more then 100 pounds even with the floor installed. I moved it easily myself by just lifting from the rear deck. If it's a body without the rear deck, maybe 10-15 less. Heck, my steel '31 roadster body weighs in at less then 300# bare

You might try a bantam body to get around the Tbucket restrictions

Well, you can continue to ask the same question over and over or you can listen to the advice you've been given and call some place like Rod 'n Race and get your answer. No one here is going to call them for you and post the weight. You want the answer, you make the call. Ball's in your court.
