Default Re: wieght reduction?

Carpeting, seats(all of 'em but the driver's), any junk on the inside of the cab or the bed, interior plastics/headliner,door panels, speakers/stereo, opting for aluminum wheels. There's tons of junk that's lightweight like the hood deadener, fender foam sealer thingys, plastic crap that don't do anything. Could always ditch the steel bumpers for fiberglass units.

What's the point?

Fiberglass hood, fenders, bed sides. Remove tow hitch, replace rear bumper with a roll pan.
