You remember what it weighed when you had the Cypress inspection?
Cant be more than 27-2800lbs ?

the National Park Service refused to weigh my buggy they told me to give them an approximation of what it weighed I told them I thought 2500 pounds the guy said no way and put downdthe I'm guessing with a full tank of fuel and a full tank of water coolers with drinks and food and then let it out like it's going to go out for a weekend in Big Cypress or out in the grass it probably weighs 2800 poundsI want to get it weighed to see what it actually is it will float on American farmers and American farmers support 748 pounds a piece depending on whether I have the two towers in or the seats in the back can change the weight of the buggy by almost 200 pounds

I was hoping they'd weigh it with the portable scales weighing front and rear separately, even though I doubt the accuracy of them but you'll have an idea of balance.

Those scales that get tossed on the ground sometimes during weighing probably never been calibrated.
I weighed in at 4600lbs with a 500 Cadillac motor , tranny and rear seats.
Years later I went to a 4 cyl transaxle , cut off rear seats and excess stuff and they claimed I still weighed 4500lbs.
Went to a truck scale and dialed in at 3800lbs...go figure government work.
