Wow! Just wondering do you know how much front seats weigh?
"Driver seat: 66.8lbs
Pass seat: 57.2lbs"

In my long wheelbase truck, the third row seat was about 70 pounds, removed, the rear HVAC unit, about 15 pounds removed and the running boards, about 70 pounds removed. The coolant and refrigerant lines front to rear may have totaled maybe 10 pounds removed, it's all aluminum tubing and it comes out in sections as you cut it.

I've had the rear seat out to replace the carpets, I think it weighs about a million pounds-but I need it so it got put back in.

Since my kids are grown and gone I removed the third row seats from my EXT, which gave an immediate improvement in acceleration. Future plans include possible removal of the rear HVAC, the spare tire, and replacing the front seats with seats from a C6 Corvette. Other plans include a carbon fiber hood and fabricating new inner front fenders from fiberglass.

For me, if I had to put a vehicle on a diet, I would never lose the A/C. On a rainy day or worse, at night, there's no getting around fogged up windows without the A/C, the weight loss would be marginal at best.

However.....100 lbs is about a tenth, which is almost a car length....tough call.

Seats, spare tire, running boards, carbon fiber hood would be a huge savings in weight, not much else unless you went into swapping sheet metal.

1. Pull the bumper covers and drill lightening holes in the bumpers. 2. Under the plastic dash there is a huge, heavy dash shaped piece of aluminum. Turn it into Swiss cheese. 3. Front inner fender wells: remake them out of fiberglass or carbon fiber.

That’s all I have for now.
