my buddies YJ weighs 2500 lbs...so he says...seems really light
You need more info than this.JeepMouse said:I cannot find the correct information. I have a '91 and need to know how much it weighs. I need to tow it with my new vehicle and it can tow 5000lbs. I believe the jeep will need to be on a trailer so I am unsure if I am within the allowable weight.
Thanks for your help!
It is a 6 cylinder, softtop, only has two seats in it. The tires are larger than stock. I guess the best idea would be to weigh the jeep! I read online that they are 2500 lbs on one site and 4000lbs on another site, so I was confused.DesertYJ said:You need more info than this.
4 or 6 cylinder? Is it all stock or does it have 44" tires on it?
Hardtop or soft?
If you are putting it on a trailer you also need to know the GVW of the trailer and the tounge weight will be dependant on where you place the YJ on the trailer.
Provide more info.
Where did you get the "my new vehicle and it can tow 5000lbs?"
Is that max towing capacity?
Is your tow vehicle set up for trailer brakes?
great suggestion.Find a certified scale at a truck stop or a landscaping yard that sells rock by weight if you really want an accurate answer to your question.
thats the weight i found a few months back for my 93 yj 2.5 5 speed....needed to know when i pulled it behind my 2005 f150 on a 2k lb trailer...well within spec for the bumper....friggin bumper on my f150 is rated for 5k...after looking at the framework for that bumper i believe every pound of it....pulled it like a toy btwI am an Owner/Operater Truck Driver and I haul cars for a living. I have a spread sheet that shows the length (152.8"), hight (72"), wheel base (93.3"), Track (front and rear 122.5"), and weight of every vehicle sold in the USA since 1910. I just checked it and your Jeep weights 2943 lbs stock.
