Re: '97 XJ Project "Body Shot"

Also I weighed my jeep with 4 corner scales. My goal was 3500 lbs. I did not hit that!

Initial weight after majority of build. Full tank and spare in the back

Total=3,870
Front=2,130 (55%)
Rear=1740(45%)

I'll be switching to this spare carrier. http://www.offroadxtreme.com/engine-...-tire-carrier/

I found the way to calculate how much your distribution is affected when you move weight out past the rear axle. So after moving some weight rearward and reducing some from the front my final numbers will be:

Total=3,910
Front=1,950 (49.9%)
Rear=1,960 (50.1%)

I was shooting for more than 50% to the rear. This is the best I'll get.
