With one steel propane tank on board (full), minus my birf/tool bag, without me (no windshield)... 3812. 56/44.

Loaded up for trail, with the tools and 2 'pane tanks (one steel, one AL), 3899. 55/45

It was 4160 with a 1/2 tank of gas before the buggy work, I was just hoping for more than 350 lbs. of weight loss.. Funny thing, my weight dist before was 55/45 also!

However, I've made the rig 5 times safer with the new cage, and have a full skid plate underneath to help slide over things.

Though, my buddy's mild TJ (decent cage, 36's on beadlocks, and a spare tire) was right around 4500...

Oh well... I was hoping for 3600. I'll live.

Not bad. Mine came out at 4232. 58% front 42% rear. Not too bad for a full tub...

Dude, mine came in at 3616. That is trail ready and I have REALLY tried to shave weight. I think your weight is great for what you have. Hell, your skidplate weighs 200# :D

Wow, your guys rigs are light, What did you take out of them?
I have slees 6" lift, a tool box in the back, me in the front, and a brush bar up front. Other than that, my junk weighs in at a certified
5700lbs, 2740 up front and 2760 in the rear.
I weighed this last night, cause I just finished installing a CAT scale that the truckers use.
I wonder about what all you have attached, cause I dont even have real bumbers, winch, spare tire, roofrack or anything, ive even got the rear seat removed.

Yes, I do have an 80. Hence the name also,.. .Project fj80. ;)
I am also working on the cummins swap. I already own the 98 6bt, Now alls I have to do is find out how to mate it to the allison at1000. Throw in some rockwells and a few other goodies, and I think it would be considered HardCore.
But first, i gots to figure out the tranny problem. Any advice?
