GVWR for Wrangler Unlimited

8435 6
I was looking at the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited's Website today for capacities and such: http://www.jeep.com/hostc/vsmc/vehicleSpecModels.do?modelYearCode=CUJ201307

I noticed that there are two different GVWR listed. This is the US site, and they do not list any sort of payload upgrade option for the JKU under the "Build your own". Is the greater payload rating somehow available in the US, or is this the J8's payload that is listed here (inappropriately, IMO)?

Yes, and Sahara has larger diameter wheels and tires, in addition to about 80 more lbs of sound proofing, and upholstery.

I'm still not clear on what the context is?
Are they showing different axle ratios? Auto vs. manual transmission?
Wrangler vs Wrangler Unlimited?

Yeah, I don't know, unless they are experiencecing a glitch?
I'm pretty sure it's not J8 info by accident, J8 isn't an option in the US, for anyone but underground mining operations.
The gap does seem to be larger than can be explained by trans or gear ratio, unless they accidentally placed 2 door info under the Unlimited info?
Maybe a question for the Dealership section?
