So, looking at where the numbers are currently lining up.. This illustrates exactly why I'm building this thing.

Look at the size, compared to a basic TJ Rubicon on 33x12.5s and a 2.5" lift.




............Rubicon 33s/2.5" lift.......CJ-3b
Width...........72.5"......................75"
Length.........156".......................131"
Height..........75.5"......................75"
wheelbase.....93.4"......................99"
weight..........3800lbs..................3100lbs
hp/weight......20lbs/hp...............19.375lbs/hp
tq/weight......16.2lbs/tq.............13.2lbs/tq



So, it'll be shorter, much much lighter, better power to weight, better ground clearance, wider track, longer wheelbase. And in my example, the CJ3b is fully built, with a full cage, winch, 37s on beadlocks, etc. The Rubi in my example is bone stock, except for 33x12.5s on some 15x8 (4"bs) wheels and a 2.5" short arm lift.
