Front D44 vs front D60 weight difference

I'm trying to get a general idea of how much weight my CJ-7's going to be gaining with the D60 swap. Does anyone know the approximate weight difference between a front D44 and D60 (both cut to CJ Widetrac width with disc brakes)?

Re: Front D44 vs front D60 weight difference

its unsprung weight, and usually folks add much larger tires at the same time and that adds to it, but a good guess would be between 150-200 pounds. heres the logic in that guess.
I sent my inner axle shafts away to get cut and they were 32 pounds on their own. add the half inch walls of the axle tubes, and the huge piggy, brakes,hubs etc....
