Need Help Truck is to heavy

Hi Guys

So yesterday i was in the registration office here in Luxembourg(Europe)

My Truck is to Heavy exactly 440lbs
It is a F350 DRW Extended 2WD

What can i do ?
I have take off
Tailgate
Rear seats complete
Trailer hitch receiver
Fuel was on minimum
Security Tire under Truck

Tommorrow i take off the rear stabilizer and this 2 tow things on the front
and i order a these Street Roll pans for removing the rear Bumper

That is only for a light truck registration
if i don't make him lighter i must do the heavy Truck registration and that sucks (and i don't have this driving license too Cost about 2800 dollars)

And the office take only on the first registration the weight after this it is good (Crazy but that is EUROPE)

Someone an other idea what can i do
Was thinking about take off the cat and DPF but is this much more heavyer then an aftermarket 5"

what a pain !........440lbs is a lot. i'd say the only thing left would be to remove the the box ..[700 lbs I think] and build a temp. flatbed out of wood.....it's what i'd be doing.

Oh sorry 440lbs was the first step
NOW ONLY 308lbs

yes was thinking too of this take of the box but if i take off the Box they will registrated in a Chassis/Cab vehicle and not in a Pick up so i can receive problems with the sheriffs if i make the box after reg.

Europe is only a pain and not only for cars

I think the rear Bumper make alone 90lbs
Rear stabilizer may be too 35

and that is registration only for 3 persons they calculate 165lbs for one person

But i can make if there is no more possibilitys only 2 seats so 2 persons
My wife must stay at home

Maybe take off the side steps if the truck has it? Maybe an extra 50 pounds there...


Good luck!

Man that really sucks! I would take off tailgate, spare tire, side steps, and back seats. That should be around 300 pounds right there. Good luck!
