JT Rubicon stock payload capacity

Can someone look at the door sticker on a JT Rubicon and report back with the true payload capacity? That or look in the owners manual. The only number I can find that is specific to the JT Rubi is 1,190 lbs. I came across a large number of auto websites that only state the 1600 lb number, without mentioning that that was for a two wheel drive sport.

I ask because Toyota reported 1105 lbs for their TRD Off road double cab long bed on the toyota.com build and price website, and now owners are finding out it's really 950.

Inquiring minds want to know.
Thanks.

TFL truck just did a comparison video and actually read off the payload capacity of a JT Rubicon door sticker. I can't remember exactly but it was about 1200lbs.

I don't think they make the gladiator in just 2wd.

Yeah, sorry. You are correct. I should have checked before I posted.

It completely depends upon options you pick. I've seen Overlands under 1,000 lbs. I've seen Rubicons under 1,200 lbs. In both cases, that's miserable payload and is sort of worthless unless you're hauling cardboard.

On the other end of the spectrum, I actually saw a door jamb sticker on a guy's base Sport model that was OVER 1,600 lbs.

So the listed numbers in the charts you see are just a baseline. Options then subtract from that as you go.
