Am I correct in seeing that a 4 door BD with 2.7 has a GVWR over 6000? If so, it looks like it qualifies for the Sec 179 deduction.

Never cared about this as you have to be a complete moron to overload the car to where is would be a concern anyway

so 2 door badlands with 2.7 is 982 lbs of payload

with 2 200lbs guys that gives you how much?

is that alot? i have no idea if this is enough for overlanding can somebody help?
Leaves you with 582 lbs.
If I'm reading everything correctly the payload assumes a 150# driver and a 150# passenger (300# total). If you have a 200# driver and 200# passenger (400# total) wouldn't you only subtract the difference ... 100#? That would leave you a 882# payload.


EDIT --- I was not reading it correctly. Payload remaining in this example is 582#

Maybe. But to a degree I feel it is splitting hairs. I'm firmly in the camp of: be "reasonable" in your load and not necessarily by the book/numbers.

I have no experience specifically with this. Need some simplified help here. I’m getting a Wildtrak. Family of 4 (2 very young still in car seats).
- I understand I can’t get roof rails factory installed. Can they be dealer ordered/installed?
-If I want to install roof rails for kayaks or luggage, what do I truly need to be aware of or think about prior to?
- I understand the 110lbs limit while moving. With the assumption of loading up a roof rack on the WT keeping it under 110lbs, is there a safety concern or just a Ford concern to stay in the Jeep class to be competitive?

My plans are not to rock crawl or anything wild with gear on top, simply traveling to a spot, unloading then loading back up.

Curb weight doesn’t include the driver or cargo. Per FMVSS 49 571.3: Curb weight means the weight of a motor vehicle with standard equipment; maximum capacity of engine fuel, oil, and coolant; and, if so equipped, air conditioning and additional weight optional engine.

49 571.3

I love the way no one ever mentions fuel. Can't see it, it's not there.... As long as they don't start flying airplanes we'll be allright.
