No, not another tire thread. I'm curious about overall weight of the vehicle. I imagine there is an advantage to a lighter rig, but how significant is that advantage, and what sort of weight savings is required to make a loaded DII "light."
By this I mean loaded for a week long jaunt. I don't have a steel bumper, winch, full rack, etc. I've even thought of pulling the rear seats. My wife and I are avid backpacker, mountaineer types so we pack light anyway.
So, does a super light DII have much advantage over a fully kitted and heavily loaded DII?
