Took my 2013 jk wrangler sport to the public scale today. It is a two door sport with a hard top ,auto trans,17in wheels and a tow package. I removed the rear seat for more room and the gas tank was full. She tipped the scale at exactly 4000 lbs. The manual states vehicle weight at 3760 lbs. I was a bit suprised, i thought it would be lighter with the rear seat removed.

Figure on about 8 lbs per gallon of gas, 18 gallons in the tank and...shazam, you added 144 lbs to your vehicle's weight...give or take. Also, is the weight in the manual dry weight? Because oil, transmission fluid, diff fluid, brake fluid, washer fluid, etc. all add up. I ought to weigh my Jeep for grins at some point.

When I saw the title, I thought maybe you had found a date online :rofl:

If you want to get it below the listed weight, just remove the doors. I bet you could get it down to 3500 that way...

No i wasn't in the vehicle when it was weighed, and i was sure the weight in the manual was with all fluids, including gas, but i could be wrong. The GVWR is 4900 lbs, that only leaves 900 pounds for people and some cargo..I can see where adding lots of after market stuff can be a problem.
