    Yes it is. That's way more then I thought it was going to be. I figured I was in the 6k range with the hard top. The GVWR is 6300 and I'm still on half ton gear. Most of that weight is bumpers, winch, rock sliders, Gas tank skid and it's all level with the frame so should not hurt my CG much. I'll have to empty out the storage box and see how much weight I carry.

    I had PI weighed one day, NO trail gear, rear seat out, no tools, rear carpet and panels removed, just a few straps. Still havent done bumpers or anything like that. It came in at 5640 IIRC.

    6640 is pretty stout tho I gotta say. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    That extra 1,000 pounds of tools and spare parts that you carry probably cause more breakage than they fix. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Last summer I weighed my jimmy and it was stuffed with tools and dieselcans and lots of things you can "need" it weighed 7300 pounds.It did really good on the trail too but one day when we were wheeling it started to get lower in the rear the frame was broken at the rear springs rear mounts.After the repair it weighs 6200 pounds no tools no top and only one diesel can (6.6 gallons)

    What breakage? I have blown ONE u-joint in the CV in 5 years. The rest of the breakage was tailights meeting rocks or ripping sidewalls out. That's my total breakage.

    Damn!!

    For Truck pullin' our maximum weight allowed with driver is 6200 lbs. I usually have to add weight (more weight = increased traction for pulling) to bring me up to 6200. That's with both tanks full on a longbed pickup. I think it weighs in around 5900 with both tanks full (22 ga x 2) and me sitting in the seat with full gear and helmet (I weight 190).

    That's alot of weight for a short wheelbased 1/2 ton /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    But regardless of the weight, you have kept driveline damage to a minimum....... and that's all that matters /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
