More interested in the 2drs but would like to see the 4drs. If you have numbers also add in what is weighing you down if it isn't in your signature. I might go weigh mine today. Curious what the bumpers/winch/skids/tires actually did to the weight.

My 2-door Rubicon has 35" General Grabbers on lightweight QT alloys, front and rear Mopar bumpers, and a Warn 9.5cti winch with synthetic rope.

One time I drove over my buddy's foot and he said "OUCH, it weighs a TON!"

Does that help?

I tried. Everytime I drove on the scale Springs popped out and a clown head jumped out and said, "Hey, get Fat Ass out of here and try again".

( I think he was referring to the Jeep)

Did you have a baseline weight before the mods? I weigh what I take off and what I add and try not to let it get way out of wack. The unsprung weight is the real issue I see with a lot of jeeps. (wheel/tire) I'm glad to see that some are upgrading their brakes to compensate.

Absolutely agree here. Weight is an issue every where, including bumpers and such. It's easy to add 500 lbs to a Jeep with just bumpers, tire carrier, winch, lift, wheels and tires.

The biggest issues are the unsprung weight and rotating mass. When I was comparing tires a few years back, I looked at the weight of all 35x12.50x17 tires. BFGs and Good years were the lightest by far. I remember the toyos weighed about 40lbs more per tire... That's an additional 200 lbs, 160 of which is unsprung weight and rotating mass. It makes a big difference with performance.

Now this thread makes we want to go find a scale.

Curb weight per Jeep on a 2016 JKU is 4100 with an auto, 4075 with a manual.

Our '13 JKU weighs in at 5020 loaded for towing with a full tank of gas.

I've added quite a bit of weight with steel bumpers, winch, skids, 37s, tire carrier, as well as carrying tools and recovery gear.

Ummmm...... How to say this. When you post "Pics of the Load".
You may want to consider "Not" posting the picture of your lovely Wife.
Just sayin' :)

Rubicons weigh more too, I don't think it's just the hood decals either..........
