Craaaaaacking up Tom,
You're definitely gonna have to stop by and check the place out. That "Floor" is my pride and joy. I had it done, when the house was brand new, two weeks before we moved in. It's so nice that when oil/antifreeze, anything is spilled, leaked, dripped etc., it wipes right up without a single stain. And, it's pretty darn tough too. I've got only a handful of chips in the entire RV and double garage floor. The only real pain is, due to the color of and layout of the chips, if I drop a small screw/nut/washer, IT DISAPPEARS instantly. I gotta get down on my knees and put my eye at ground level to "scan" across the floor to see it.
Scott

When I weighed my 2011 JKUR last year it was 5960 lbs.

I have the hardtop and am running custom front and rear bumpers, Warn winch with steel cable, Dynatrac ProRock 44 front axle housing, long-arm suspension, 35" tires and dual ARB compressors as well as a Viair backup compressor. The biggest weight adder to my setup is my toolbox in the rear with tools, including recovery and shovel/ax/pick.

Since last weighing however, I have removed one of my air compressors and added dual 10 lb. CO2 tanks as well as upped the tire size to 37" tires and LS engine. I am sure I am slightly over 6k pounds now but will have to weigh in again soon to verify exact weight although the LS engine and 6-speed transmission are only about 40 lbs. different from the 3.8 litre engine.

Yeah, it's alright. Definitely not the lightest setup however. But then again, not the heaviest either. I know of some guys over the 7k pound mark that are running one ton axles and 40's but that is just crazy weight. I could take less tools with me and lighten the load a bit but not willing to risk not having the tools necessary when someone breaks down.

So folks,

What weight would a stock 2 door and 4 door weigh? Something in the region of 10-12 years old.

A stock 2008 JK Wrangler Rubicon 2 Door will weigh 4104 lbs Empty.

A Stock 2008 JKU Wrangler Rubicon 4 Door will weigh 4315 lbs Empty.

A Standard, 2008 Non Rubicon Wrangler will weigh 3760 lbs (2 Door), 4075 lbs (4 Door) Respectively.

In my opinion I would not buy a 2007-2011 Wrangler unless you find one in great condition for a screaming deal. The improvements to the engine, drivetrain and interior of the 2012 and newer Wrangler is well worth the extra money you will spend. '07-'11 have the anemic 3.8L V6. The '12 and newer 3.6 Pentastar is far superior in every way.
