Jeep Wrangler 4 door weight?

Hi folks,

For anyone who has put a 4 door on a scales can you let me know the weight?

Let's say anything newer than 2010.

Also is it hard or soft top and any extra weight?

Thanks,

When I weight my coach the toad was attached and it weights in on the CAT scale at 4960 with a full tank of fuel and no diver or passengers. Mine is a 2017 Wrangler Sahara with hardtop.

Thanks CWS,

That's exactly the info I am looking for. That would be too heavy for my coach.

I think by the time you filled it up with fuel and had a few things inside and maybe aftermarket bumpers to make it a little more off road capable CWS's numbers could be pretty close. I agree that anything approaching 5000lbs is more than you really want to tow.



I'm not sure if you need a 4 door for extra human passengers or for critters but the Jeep Wrangler LJ is a decent 2 door rig that has a lot more room than a typical 2 door Wrangler. Built from 2004 to 2006 the Jeep TJU or TJ Unlimited is a decent rig. They are fairly expensive for that you get but the extra space is very welcome over a typical 2 door Wrangler. The Jeep LJ is about 15" longer than the 2 door Wrangler, 15" longer overall, 10" longer wheelbase. About 3" more rear seat legroom and 12" more cargo room behind the rear seat.



I've weighed my Wrangler multiple times on several different scales. 2006 Wrangler TJU. Hardtop. Rubicon.



Published curb weight as delivered = 3850lbs.

Half Tank of Fuel, Aftermarket bumpers and winch and some recovery gear = 4250lbs.

Add 2 bikes and bike rack, a few light things inside, half the tow bar system weight, etc = 4400lbs



In summary. My jeep, all loaded up ready to tow with bikes and fuel and some gear inside is about 550lbs heavier than the published curb weight. It's reasonable to assume almost any Wrangler is gonna weigh about 500lbs more than published curb weight if you plan on setting it up to go off road.



Pics for attention.

Thanks for the reply Tom,

Just doing more research before deciding what tiad to get (or get one at all).

A newer 4 door would be a direct replacement for my daily driver but as I guessed it will be too heavy.

Another option is to get a dedicated mid 2000's 2 door, but once I add, towing, off road equipment, kayaks and fuel it may be too close to my tow capacity.

Hi Daven,

Its 5000lbs rated hitch. I can tow that once my gross weight is under 30,000lbs, last weigh in was less than 23,000lbs full.

Would like to keep it south of 4500lbs as have to factor in tow gear, roof racks and kayaks.

This doesn't apply to your needs, but my 05 LJ setup for serious off roading weighs in at 5200#. But that's with one ton axles, armor and 40" tires. Not your typical toad.
