Surprised by TJ's weight??

I believe this topic has been covered before,..... but what good if you can't find it when you want it??

Because of new trailer, and trying to determine tongue weight, I went to Loves Truck Stop Scales. After doing math..... total wt minus truck wt.... minus trailer wt........I get 4220 lbs for my 98 TJ; full fuel but without me in it.

Seems heavy to me! How does it compare with others?

That sounds pretty close to me for having to do the math.
There are truck scales where I work and I have driven my TJ across it.
I was in it and the scale said 4240. I weigh 220.
