Thank you for responding. I apologize that I wasn't very clear in what I was asking. What I was asking about is the following:JTE said:The 120lb difference between Sahara and Sport may be because the Sahara has heavier wheels and tires (plus more standard features) than the Sport, thus lowering the payload and raising the Gross Weight rating accordingly on otherwise nearly identical vehicles.
Here's the context - I was curious about the payload for the Wrangler Unlimited. I went to the page I listed above, clicked on the dimensions and capacities tab, and notice the two different GVWRs in each model. There is no mention of different axle ratios for the models, or what allows for this higher GVWR. For example, the Sahara has a difference in standard GVWR to maximum GVWR of 2523 lb. How is that even possible? It can't just be gearing and transmission can it? I would think that would have more to do with brakes, frame, and suspension stiffness, wouldn't it? I don't understand why they would list that GVWR on their site if it's not available to us here in the States. I mean, it is the USA Jeep website.MoparNorm said:I'm still not clear on what the context is?
Are they showing different axle ratios? Auto vs. manual transmission?
Wrangler vs Wrangler Unlimited?
