Where on earth did you shave another 330lbs? If I have that much weight hidden, I need to know the diet!!! That is insanely light, I bet it feels great whipping it around .
Serious? Cage and axles. Stock ones have to weight less than your spendy ones.

Imped, now I am curious. I will try and do the same since I have the LJ stripped down, alum armor and post rhinoplasty.

I thought we were in the 4300s when tech'd at KOH without you or I in it? I might not be remembering that right.

I need to find somebody with a 4 corner scale around here. I'm worried about going over 4400 with my heavy axles. I'm trying to shed as much as I can from the rest of the jeep to keep it down. I'd hate to have to build another cage....

The fabricated 9" center sections are lighter but the front outers are definitely heavier than the D30 stuff lol. His rear axle is definitely lighter than a D44 though.

I'm aware of the smaller things adding up. I was 3970'ish before I did any cage or axle swaps: IE Rubi 44's and Poison Spyder Cage.

Serious.

See above. And my axles were chosen because they are actually lighter than most setups. But again, see above, I was at 3970'ish with the typical modified TJ stuff.

We were 4330 on a 4 corner scale with the spare tire, 22 gallon fuel cell, highlift jack, door bars (very heavy), doors, window nets, pumper, gps bar, and gps. All of the Ultra4 stuff (including the spare) comes in around 300lbs- which means I daily drive around right at the 4k mark. Which is a HUGE difference from 3660.



Me saying I can't see how you are at 3660 is a knock on me, not on you Imped. I'm missing something here and just can't figure it out. Interested in wheeling in NC ? I need a good walk around of your rig.


Here's a shot of the jeep on the scale at roughly 4020lbs- pre fab 9's or any Ultra4 cage work. Armor is aluminum, and I had my doors on and subwoofer box in at the time. Doors and sub equal about 40 to 50lbs combined which would put me around 3970'ish.

Imped, I know this is going back a ways for you but when you installed the PSC steering gear did you have any clearance issues or difficulty getting it to mount back up to the frame? We made sure to shorten the steering shaft as PSC said to do but still having some difficulty getting all three bolts to line up.

None at all. You sure you have the Saginaw box with the late-model bolt pattern? It should have a spot for a fourth bolt, as well. If you have the correct bolt pattern you could open up the ID of the bolt bosses a hair to see if that gives you enough play to start them all.

Yeah I'm positive the box has the correct bolt pattern because thinking about that kept me up all night last night then I measured it first thing in the morning compared to my old box. I might end up opening up the bosses a little tonight if the fight gets to me enough. Thanks for the insight.
