    If you know the weight of your lightweight tractor, let me know.
    I'm looking for any information: conventional, cabover, day cab, sleeper.
    Please include: year, make, model, sleeper size if it has one (inches and flat top, mid roof, condo).
    How much fuel does it have at this weight?

    I don't know the exact application yet. I'm gathering information.
    Thanks

    Depends how it was ordered.

    Just sold a 00 fld day cab. 189wb, n14 13 speed. 18,200lbs.

    My 00 Fld classic is 235wb midroof sleeper at 17,900.

    Any of them with a cat will add about a 1,000 lbs. Then tire and wheel choice can very a 1,000lbs.

    Some manufacturers have a light weight build option.

    Light weight axles are thinner and will flex going down the road and cause tire wear. They seem to be making the axle housing to thin today
