Re: how much does a tub weigh?

I don't know exactly, but I removed my by myself with a pair of cheapo ratchet straps. I was able to lift the entire rear of my tub up and off the frame by myself, so not too bad.

My frame is currently hanging from weeny hooks in the joists of my basement, so again, not really heavy.

What I want to know is how much a TJ frame with axles, tranny, and x-case would weigh or can I pull that on a trailer behind a TJ?

CJ7 Tub is about 300 lbs. It depends on how much rust it has! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

dont know the exact weight of the tub, but me and one and a half friends switched tubs on my old 78 (two of us had no problems lifting and maneuvering the tub).

Re: how much does a tub weigh?

i have carried my cj-8 frame by myself...i wasn't graceful, but i did carry it. so, i'm guessing 250-300 lbs for the frame.

2 people can move a tub, its just kind of hard to balance, with 3 people, its easy.
