Factory curb weight on an early 5 is only 2200Lbs;
- Single wall glass race body that you can literally see through on a sunny day.
- No cage.... and I'm still alive after 20+ years of driving it
- Mostly aluminum 3800 engine
- Open C frame with bell crank crossmember and all cast iron pedals, mounts etc removed.
- Cast iron drum e-brake and all related crap removed.
- Interior gutted other than a pair of clapped out 66' VW Beetle seats

Last time on the scale without me or tools etc.. in it, no spare or trail rack, it was 1977 Lbs. I've yet to weigh it all loaded up with me in it, but figure it's still under 2500 in trail form.

Don't worry, RenegadeII is fat at trail weight too. And that doesn't include the jeep.

I've got an empty right seat this year. If Dan can squeeze in there I could fit 5 of you
