CJ7 Curb Weight?

I've got a 76 CJ7 with the 304 and it has a fiberglass body. Does anyone know the stock curb weight of this jeep with the steel tub? How much weight am I saving with the Fiberglass tub and thick plastic gas tank? Thanks, J.Shank

The bare steel tub probably isn't as heavy as you think. Two guys can pick it up and carry it around. My guess is that it's about 200 pounds. The hood, fenders, grill, windshield frame and tailgate probably add another couple hundred. If you replace the whole thing with good fiberglass components you probably save around a hundred pounds or so.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
