Default Weight of Sami's?

Just looking for the weight for towing purposes. It's a 1.3L carbed model with a soft top.

curb weight was around 2100 lb, plus or minus whatever you have done with it.

Yep, about 2100 lbs.

Funny, Sami's and Flatfenders are very similar.

Both have the same width, length, track, wheelbase, and rough curb weight.

OMG you mean the Japanese probably copied the Dimensions because it was such a kick ass car in WWII and they kind of got their ass nuked, that maybe they wanted one? Or it could just a coincidence because those dimensions actually turn out to be pretty good for a stock wheeler to haul a bag of rice and 2 people, and if they get stuck they can get out and push, etc.

Yeah thanks

I have to tow it with my XJ and it doesn't like loads over 3000lbs very much. I think I will be in the 2500lb range with this one. I figured it was in the low 2's but I just wanted to confirm.

well flattowing is different than regular towing, so that 3K number might not mean much

I can tow more than that but the brakes become a serious hazard. I had enough trouble going cross country with 1000lbs in the jeep and 1700ish behind it.

I have flat towed my flatfender behind my old XJ (31"s + 3.5" RE lift, no swaybars)... we were actually towing in the snow, it worked suprisingly well. I'd not be too worried, key factor will be the stability of the sami itself.
