    700 series saginaw boxes are 3-5 pounds lighter than the 600 series Saginaw boxes. but all the aftermarket companies I would assume are using a stock GM box, just rebuilding it with new guts and new gears.
    you can always buy one that has been cnc lightened.
    I think there should be lifeguards in the genepool.

    What's the steering wheel movement lock to lock on the fast steer box (8:1) maybe fastest ratio. Quickner needed still?

    depends on how fast you want it
    the shorter the steering arm on spindle is say Mustang II most do an 8:1
    if using a GM Metric length arm most do the 6:1
    arm length on steering box and idler arm have an effect as well.

    Not sure what years and models, but I would assume starting around 2000 model years 2500 and 3500 4x4's
    My 09 2500HD Duramax has one that looks like the 700 series.
