I'm going to guess 1350.

Only the extras

The company that prints the 20-30k sends them all out, then gives us the extras for requests/rallies.

right.

because if you did have all them in your car, that would be an easy calculation: 200 grams per issue x 25,000 (approximately) x 454 (gr/lb) = 11,013 pounds + estimate for boxes at 1%

if it had 11,000 pounds of stuff back there, those would have been some kick ass springs Zack!

A couple years ago when I didn't have the D1/D2 and our puma was away, I had to take my boss' LR2. Ended up being a little over 2000lbs of magazines in an LR2, pretty hilarious. Bottomed out on every bump.

76 lbs over when assuming fresh stock springs. Assuming fresh was a mistake.

Zack is a pretty fresh guy-just not when it comes to truck parts!

I think the closest guess without going OVER should win!?

It just occurred to me that Rovers North does (or did) have access to a pretty sweet Puma Defender. It seems to me that this would have been THE perfect job for that truck. Why didn't you get to drive that?


(and don't let your bosses tell you its because the Puma is for Show & Display purposes only, because you know they play with that truck all the time!)


Regardless, that's an impressive amount of weight in a Disco

Thought Zack was being sarcastic with the stock coils, so I stuck w/ my initial OEM HD spring assumption.
