Hi Don,

That is a interesting find. I was always curious how much your truck weighs as i was thinking to go close to your mods. So when i planned to get the sliders and skids i got the info from Tactical and here is the weight info they gave me,

The sliders weigh about 205Lbs for the pair. The tank skid is 70 and the trans is 60. So about 335Lbs all together.

Ah, thanks for the note Anudeep. I guess I did estimate a little on the light side for the Tactical armor. That makes me wonder if I'm also underestimating the rear bumper weight a bit.

Other than the bumpers and winch which would be around 500 lbs you'll be pretty close to me. It's easy to push one of these rigs up to 7000 lbs.

My brakes are a year old, but I noticed a bit of squeal on last weekend's trip. I'll have to have a look at the pads. But to tell the truth I've never felt they were inadequate. My biggest complaint is that with the air springs cranked up I'm effectively running a very high spring rate with stock shock valving, so she's under-damped. That was part of why I did the new struts on the truck, but since they are OEM parts the valving is the same and I still have more bounce than I'd like. There is a noticeable difference between fully loaded and just out for a weekend as my camping gear can easily add 500 lbs (extra fuel, water, tent, cots, chairs, food, drinks, clothes, stove, etc) and it all pretty much ends up in the back of the rig. That's also why my Hi-Lift is on the front just to help even out the load.

Now that I think about it, this can also help me justify going to on-board air. That would move the compressor from the rear storage area to under the hood. Yeah...that's just the justification I need. :)

I think if you remove your rear seats your going to add in more weight than you think by adding in wood and shelves. Then your going to load in more tools and gear. So now you just took what you thought you wanted away and added in more. I understand your worries but I'm pretty sure your okay with this as a daily driver. The rating on your door might be close to your actual weight bit I think you will survive. I'm sure there are heavier LR3s than yours.


I was told the 2005 LR3 was the heaviest built by LR. I don't have the figures. Rear seats were at least 75 lbs. Teds may have a better guestimate. Removing the seats did give me about 3 inches extra depth for storage. Pedrams correct extra space will be replaced with extra weight.

Michal probably has the heaviest truck here in the LR3-4 department. Two tires, full metal jacket, and a huge spare 28 gal tank?!?!

Yeah, between the dual tires and extra fuel he's certainly carrying plenty of weight.

Pedram, you worked with both his Kaymar and my bumper - I'm thinking the one you built is likely heavier than the Kaymar. Would you agree? And then I've got the jerry can where he has the extra tire, so maybe they end up pretty close.

I would say Michal's truck overall because of the 28+ 19 gallons of fuel alone. He's got the bigger roof rack, he doesn't have a front bumper but a hidden winch. Plus a cage for the doggie, child seats, more switches and I think he weights more than you, in human weight. I think all together you two might be the fattest land rovers.

Yep! I am the fattest rover :))) That being said - still no issues with the weight. I clock 12mpg city and 15mpg hwy fully loaded. It is a heavy car without any of my "additions" but I did notice the extra weight especially after the addition of the rear bumper and aux fuel tank.

Um children, let's not argue over who is the fattest fully loaded Rover, top spot is and will always be mine, you can fight for second place [ATTACH]5854[/ATTACH]

Steel bumpers, steel rims, big heavy tires, Diesel engine, underbody skids, full roll cage, food for 4 Solis men, 3.15 Solis'....you get the point.

Well I figured that my dad and brother and the gear/food for them added probably 600 pounds plus all the spares, 4 gal of coolant, 2 gal of oil, misc other fluids and parts, recovery gear, etc. I did take off the sand ladders and saves some weight.

"3.15 Solis" - I like this. It sounds very technical.

What's the speed of a CT110 in a vacuum? 3.15 Solis.

Well i took Roxson's current weight which is 15% of mine so he is 0.15 of a grown Solis.

There is a Solis constant tho, used for all kinds of things:
Exact amount of entertainment is equal to the vol of alcohol in ounces multiplied by number of drinking hours on the day in question multiplied by the Solis constant.

Amount of meat you will need for a party is number of guests x 0.5 pounds and then multiple that by the Solis constant of "it's not enough triple it" and now you have how much meat is required.

The only one that can never ever ever be challenged or adjusted is the Solis:Salami equation which is literally the weight of the salami must equal the weight of the Solis.

Hey Michal!

How are you buddy? How's the mods?


Everything is working perfectly. We are soooo lucky to have Pedram in our club as he literally did magic with the aux tank!!!! Let's be frank - it is nice to be able to pump 45 + gallons of fuel and not worry about range :)

When are you installing yours???
