I would say it is probably between 30 and 40 lbs. not sure if that is considered heavy, but regarding any load up there, it will definitely be a test of the factory rails (150 lbs I know) not the rack. That thing is overly strong. Appreciate the likes though!
Yesterday I put on my wheel spacers and today im doing new TRE's. Hopefully it will fix my DW I got all of a sudden. They were pretty shot and I could turn the nut on the passanger side with my fingers. Holy unsafe jeep batman!!!
Well, 5 months after my accident and I finally have a new WJ! Picked up a 2002 limited with the v8 and Quadra-Drive. Its in really nice condition and I'm already doing stuff to it.
Last night with the help of my dad I installed my Warn front receiver. Unlike my previous WJ I had to actually cut the two center slats out. No big deal, the sawzall made quick work of the plastic bumper.
I also put in my old floor mats, cargo cover, and fixed the issue of the rear glass not opening. Turned out that the wiring harness was unplugged in the rear lift gate.
I still have more on my list of to-dos but for now I'm happy to be back in a WJ!
