    I don't see a lighter 5.3 engine in a 1/2 ton truck and an 8.5 inch 10 bolt rear, probably aluminum wheels, a long bed 2wd, even coming close to what my old tank of a truck weighs. If it's a short bed it would be even lighter yet.

    Our camaro's aren't exactly feather weights either for what used to be considered among the pony car crowd.

    They range from 4300lbs-4900lbs depending on size and options of the 2001 1500 series.

    I didn't do the swap or I would've done something up in that range! I will when I swap in a 12 bolt!

    That was actually a wise move. You are better off swapping in a 6 speed 3.42 rear in the auto's. You won't see much (if any) difference in performance between the 3.42's or the 3.73's, not to mention the 7.5's are a waste of time to stick money in.

    If you are going to spend $500 + dollars for a gear upgrade you may as well spend your money on a good rear to start with first.

    I agree with Jones...

    Total waste of time, effort, money, waste of it all trying to mess with the 7.5" 10 bolt. It's a 12 bolt/9"/Dana or nothing

    Another thing is not every one is a like, maybe he didnt want to go with 3.73's?

    Also very cheap to get some used ones out of m6 probably.
