Hi all, in having trouble narrowing down my gvw.... My state title says its under 3500lbs. However upon researching my vin... its giving me a gvw of 4,001 to 5,000lbs... The vin is a canada vin. 1987 yj...
Many trucks stops have scales that they let you use for a few bucks. We used to use them for our race cars all the time. You just drive onto the "pad", put your money in the slot, and out comes a printed receipt with your weight on it. Boom
I understand about the differances between the curb weight ( on title?) and the GVW... My concern is im going to be doing a v8 swap and with the drivetrain i'll be putting in I want to make sure that i'll be within the GWV after all is said and done..
Just want to make sure that I have all my ducks in a row b4 i proceed with my project. I dont want to finish my project and then when i go to re-register and get it reinspected that i'll fail because i will be over my GWV.
Now that i am really thinking about this how would they even know you were over, they dont weigh them at inspection and your not driving a truck that requires you to stop at weigh stations. Just think of all the weight accessories like bumpers, 1/4" thick steel body armor, winchs , bigger tires and suspension add to a rig..
Im installing a chevy diesel in my wrangler. Since the jeep never came with a diesel option, I have to get a special inspection/title done and they weigh the vehicle when the project is completed. Its pretty much a visual and safety inspection. I just need to make sure that my gvw wont be exceeded when I finish my project. Hence y im trying to get the gvw.....
I would have to say , Maybe check with the state/inspection station and see what gvw they require. If they leave it up to you then wiki/google for it . pic the best and present it to them:angel: . If the law requires you to follow set paramiters ,then they must provide said law for you to follow!
