well, i been lookin up stuff and if anyone wants to know, obvsiously jegs and summit have moser, competition engineering and strange rear ends that are fabbed and lighter, but racecraft has one thats nice for a grand made of mild steel and weighs with all options the site gives you at 65lbs so figured with locker axles and fluid just over 100lbs possibly, which imo thats huge weight savings for mass
