Ok, the “ride” was really the Jeep sitting on a trailer to go get an exhaust system installed at a local shop that does great work. For the record, the shop is RPM in Lake Geneva, WI. If you need work done, let Randy know that you heard about them from me. They did a great job on the exhaust and as long as I was out, I thought it would be nice to get the Jeep weighed as well. There is a weigh station down the road that is normally empty but you can see the scale display from outside. I weighed both ends, then overall. These aren’t very exciting but it was really fun to see the looks on people passing by as I let the Jeep roll off the trailer and on to the scale. When I was done, I winched it back on the trailer and took it home.
This last one is the total weight of the Jeep. Of course there are some pieces missing, but I think it’s pretty good. I also took a stock 1995 Jeep Wrangler with a 2.5L and five-speed to the same scale and got a total of 2940 lbs. For putting one-ton axles, a Chevy V-8, and rollcage on a Jeep, it only gained about 600 lbs.
