Has anyone weighed their 2013 JK 2 door?

I weighed mine after adding the following:

1. Rugged Ridge modular front bumper full width
2. Warn Power Plant Winch
3. Rugged Ridge Front Skid Plate
4. Ace Rock Rails
5. Rock Hard Oil Transmission skid plate
6. Rock Hard Transfer Case Skid Plate
7. Rock Hard Evapo Canister Skid Plate
8. Solid Diff Covers front and rear
9. High Rock Best Top rear Bumper and tire Carrier
10 Weathertec front floor mats
11. Full tank of fuel
12. Me in the drivers seat

The Factory says the curb weight for my 2013 Rubicon with a hardtop is 4135 pounds.

I scaled mine last Saturday and the front axle weighs 2500 pounds and the rear axle weighs 2440 for a total of 4940. I have stock suspension and stock Rubicon tires and wheels. I plan to add a set of 35x12.5x15 Falken Wild peak AT's on American Racing Wheels they weigh 88 pounds each. The stock tires and wheels I guess are roughly 28 pounds less than the 35's. The falkens will add 140 pounds. I plan to add a 2.5 inch lift but don't know how much weight this will add over stock.

I thought it was interesting that the front and rear are closely balanced. By adding tools, camping gear, clothes, etc. Plus a female passenger (wife) I am guessing the rear axle will weigh a little more than the front axle and the total weight may be in the range of 5500 pounds fully loaded. Probably 2600 pounds front and 2800-2900 for the rear.

Has anyone weighed yours when fully loaded? Will this make a difference in the springs used for the lift? Should one provide this information to the lift mfg to customize the lift tune?
