the YJ's ranged from like 3,028 on up to 3,241 lbs.

no idea what sized tires/axles he's running, but if he had them full of helium along with the cage pressurized and holding helium then it might actually weigh less than stock

he's right at the limit of what I'd feel comfortable for a long haul. but I once was stupid enough to pull 6 pallets of industrial building block on a 3 axle i-beam trailer with a heavy half from Holly Michigan to Commerce Michigan.

the only white knuckle moments were accelerating, stopping, turning... and anything over 35 mph set the trailer pitching enough to make the sharts start happening so I didn't do that either

p.s. it wasn't my truck, a 1 ton ford diesel was supposed to be hooked up to the trailer when I arrived, but that Ford didn't have any brakes...
