Weight capacity of Cherokee Sport vs Grand Cherokee

I'm about to get a Jeep and was wondering what the weight capacity of a late 90s Cherokee Sport was compared to a same era Grand Cherokee.

They are pretty much the same thing, or at least very similar, the ZJ is slightly larger and heavier but a lot of the specs are real close or the same. If you are really wanting to compare for weight, I would assume a V8 ZJ would probably handle weight the best rather it be towing or payload.

I dont know what you want as far as weight capacity but I posted some of the specs below.

Grand Cherokee (ZJ)
curb weight: 3574 lbs (93-95) 3926 lbs (96-98)
max payload: 1150 lbs
tow capacity: 5000 lbs

Cherokee (XJ)
curb weight: 3057 -3386 lbs
max payload: 1150 lbs
tow capacity: 5000 lbs
