Everything I've found says 2dr Unlimiteds are 2000#.
Approx weight of a Wrangler is 2400#, GVWR (on door sticker) is 4600#, which leaves 2200#.
Unless a Jeep weighs 1100#, I don't see how it could be rated at 3500#

EDIT: Hmm, now I found other info that says 3500#,
but during the same search, I found one site that said the Unlimiteds are rated at 1000# ???????
