Max weight in TJ cargo area?

Does anyone know what the safe-maximum weight a TJ can take in the cargo area?

Thanks! Thats good to hear. She's 450lbs and I'm only 120 so it's well within the jeeps limit.

I brought a 10 ft bagged Christmas tree home two years ago one winter in the back with the soft top off and left at home. They used a fork lift to get it in and the back dropped about 2", no idea what it weighed but it was a SOB to get back out and up into the living room. It took 4 of us to slide it out on a ramp then drag it up on another ramp into the house. I know it was heavy because we still have a flat spot in the carpet two years later.
