Drove it across the scales at Pilot Truck Stop today:

Front axle = 2,280 lbs

Rear axle = 2,920 lbs

Trailer = 5,260 lbs

Information was worth every penny of the $9.50 it cost me.

I'm not digging the black wheels on that color WJ. Try a dark graphite.

Garage
first took off my rails and sanded/painted them bedliner black. Unfortunately, i found a LOT of rust in them and its even starting to eat through the side so eventually i'll cut off the rail mounts and weld on some custom tubes. After that i was feeling ambitious so I pulled the rear hitch and sanded off the rust to clean it up. Got her primed and ready for final coat which i'll do tomorrow. I really want to start the rear tire carrier project but I don't have immediate access to a welder

Brakes. Frozen caliper pin made it a 3 hour job for one wheel. And it still grabs. Craptastic. Tune up with e3 plugs. That passenger rear plug was a PITA. By the way dubs suck to wprk on. It makes me love my ZJ more. Lol.
