    Could I get some more weighs of Blazers. I would like front and back have weight if you have it. Maybe with a winch and a small block and maybe one with a Big Block. My old blazer was a stock 73 blazer with 31" tires and a Caddy 500 engine and it weighted in at 5320lbs total and the front weighed 2620lbs and the rear with 30 gallons of gas weighed in at 2700lbs.

    Nope...a 3900 lb Jeep is average. My buddies YJ tipped the scales at 4000 even. Its pretty close to stock too. He could prolly lose 350 lbs if he removed his tools and hardtop...

    Mine weighs in at 5680 with a pop up camper on it.
    I just went through a DOT scale with it.
    I'll do front and back on my way to work.
    The scale is 2 miles from my house.

    I've got a buddy who's done the Bummer conversion. 'glass Hummer look alike body on a Chevy frame w/massive bumpers, cage, 38s (no lift) and 14 bolt rear added after.

    Said he lost 600 LBS off the O/E weight of his step-side p.u. w/1/2 gear and tires. (can't remember the exact weight)

    I went through a different scale tonight and the rear weighs in at 2750 and the front is 2850.
    I am guessing that the camper weighs around 700 LBS.
    so with the top ond tailgate it prolly comes in at around 5K.
