Weight of a Stock JK Rubicon Unlimited

Someone mentioned they thought the weight distibution on the JK is 60/40. I didn't think so.

I weighed mine today and here are the numbers.

Stock 2008 JK Rubicon Unlimited w/automatic transmission, gas tank half full, no occupants inside:

Scales have current calibration, accuracy within 10 lbs.

Left front tire 1200 lbs.
Right front tire 1200 lbs.
Left rear tire 1100 lbs.
Right rear tire 1100 lbs.

Front axle total 2400 lbs.
Rear axle total 2200 lbs.

Total weight 4600 lbs.

Weight distribution:
52% front
48% rear
