I read that curb weight on the 4X4 Overland w/ the HEMI is like 5,210 pounds. That's pretty damn heavy lol, my truck is 5,330 pounds.

I'm aware... but I'm just saying. My truck is A LOT bigger than the Jeep. The 4x4 Ram is 5,535 lbs... so only another 200 lbs than mine.

5,200 seems about right though, being wider, and a big longer than the WK.... and I'm sure the quadra-lift system adds some weight. Too bad the HEMI doesn't put out 390/407 like it does in the Ram.. that'd be sweeeeeeeet.

In due time, with tuning, it will. :D lol

Heck yeah... I'm thinking with exhaust, intake & tune should be over 400 at the crank easy.


I'm in love with this thing though... all these pics coming out - I can't wait to see one in person. I'm contemplating driving one... I'd probably buy it - but I want to wait until later in production (like 2012/2013) when they'll have the bugs worked out and hopefully a 6+ speed auto trans will be in there.

More likey to see the ZF 8 speed than a 6'er.

Weight is a little troubling, but its always been that way with Jeeps. My AWD Denali is significantly larger and weighs nearly 5500 lbs.
