Re: 1976 CJ5 - Gross Weight

Here's a ballpark....

1985 (with 258)....

CJ-7 3,750 lbs. (1)
Scrambler 4,150 lbs.

(1) GVWR for hardtop with heavy-duty suspension: 4,150 lbs.

While a CJ-5 should be slightly lighter if you have a 304 with a T18 (or some other heavy transmission) it comes out about the same.

Would bet if you go to your local grain elevator or truck stop scale that you weight over 3,500 and less than 2 ton, plus or minus the junk that you have cut off or added.
