Out of curiosity and to keep me legal when towing / transporting my Zuk i ran it over a weight bridge today.

Front axle 640kg
Rear axle 510kg
Gross 1150kg

Gives you all a rough guide about the weights of modded zuks. Soon as i can get the tin top over a weigh bridge i will be.

That's wet?

I'd guess you're a bit over factory, but really not *that* much...

I wonder what mine would weigh, I would have thought both those trucks would have been lighter than that.

I always thought mine would be around 1250 but i must be out by a mile !

Wet=weight of vehicle whilst topped up with necessary fluids - i.e. with coolant, petrol, oil etc at or near full.

I think mine would be between 1200 and 1300kg, depending on the wheels/tyres and doors, half doors are super light compared to full doors.

Always wanted to weigh it just never have, in some ways it's lost weight but it's probably gained more than it's lost.

can't remember the offical words but i know what you mean. Basic weight in a ready to use state but not full of all the additional stuff sometimes carried (camping gear, tools, spares etc...).

I did think it would be a little heavier.
