We shall see. The original was actually showing 3200 pounds curb weight for the wagon version. We will probably have tires that are 200 pounds heavier, and another 300 pounds of plastic trim!

I wonder how much modern corrosion protection weighs? The original had virtually none.

And that corrosion was just more weight savings right?

This is crazy. My wife's 2018 Accord is roughly the same size, but less than 3200 pounds...
It's not a TT V6 or AWD either.

Oh man, figured it was a 4 banger. Still, that's a massive difference.
It all adds up, true dual exh, larger IC/cooling system, rear diff/power take off/driveshaft, adjustable suspension, cabin noise cancelling mics, 19 inch wheels, 13.7 inch front brakes, even much larger wheel studs (wheel torque is 150 :shock: ) due to stock 380 torque. Engine block is also CGI (well half of it, sort of) too

I'm hoping the GOAT modes compensate for this issue.

I do all my wheeling at 10k' elevation. I have a turbo in my LJ wrangler along w/ the F150 E.5EB. Truck goes rock crawling and on trails more than the Jeep does. Bronco will have the 2.7EB.
