Well I weighed my rear seat. It weighs 38lbs. So I guess you could say seat removal saves a good amount of weight haha

Saving 28 lbs on wheels is a LOT more helpful to performance and gas mileage than saving 28 lbs of cargo or off body.

You're saving rotating mass when you save wheel (or tire) weight. That matters a lot!

Grizzlies are one of the most beautiful wheels I've ever seen. Good choice!

The rims has alot of corrosion around the lip so I had to clean it really good strip the clear coat and then decided to do a dark gun metal on the lip. I'm getting new center caps and paint those the same as the lip

Beautiful! My fav wheels are Grizzlies and Eccos.

Grizzlies are the most beautiful wheels, IMO. Eccos are a close second.

My first XJ had Grizzlies. My second XJ has Eccos.

A piece
I reweighed a Ravine last night using a bathroom scale, doing as Charley3 suggested by weighing myself and then again with the wheel and subtracting - same result as previously, 17 lbs.
