I drove onto my bathroom scale, but it broke it, so I would say more than 350 pounds.

Many of these guestimated weights are pretty far off, methinks.

yep... I weighed the YJ when I was at the scrapyard this weekend... I am guessing on the flatty, but that should be pretty close. the 66 frame and 225 aren't that much heavier.

But the pre-'05 Dakota is 4043 curb weight and the newer ones are at ~4500 lbs

I knew that one was off

Yeah, 225s are actually lighter than the L heads, IIRC. Those old engines are pigs.

I'm trying to find a 500 lb hanging scale for my cherry picker before the CJ build to keep track.

I agree, I would bet half of these guestimates are 1,000 lbs light, at least. If I recall correctly a stock tj weighed in at 3200 or more with a soft top.

TJs ranged from ~3200, to about 3800 for rubis, stock.

CJ5s of later years started around 2600, and fiberglass bodies rarely lower the weight.

well, when i get the rear on bags or coils, ill know what the total sprung weight is, but I know for a FACT that the front corners have 900lb on em per side. With 35s and a 44, I cant see the front weighin in at more than 2300# and I know the weight distribution isnt that good.

but i guess i was a little under on my guess. yer prob in the area. Bout 4000#

i agree they are all a little light, according to my title my commando weights 3100, i'd geuss the top is prolly 400 of that so i could easily see a cj at 2500, but not with a cage, winch, bumpers, 35's plus all the extras, it seems a little low, i'll definately have to go weigh it when i'm done
