Weight distribution:
front axle= 54%
rear axle= 46%
 
Perfect weight distribution for a vehicle with this amount of power and its height. No wonder why they had to go for the 4WD option with the 60/40 (front/rear) power distribution. Well balanced. Almost as if the engineers at Jeep knew what they were doing. LOL

I agree. With the V8 high up in the engine bay, this makes sense. Curious about how this affects serious off-road abilities, but not an issue for me personally(I think).

A 50/50 weight distribution would be preferable for off-roading, but that usually applies to shorter Jeeps with smaller engines, less torque and less horse power than what is in this 392 Jeep. A lot of factors; length, weight, height, power, and purpose to name a few, affect which weight distribution is best for a vehicle.

We won't know if this is the right weight distribution for the 392 until we start driving it in multiple conditions. I am so used to off-roading my (more torque than HP) 2003 TJ (short wheel base), I'm curious to see how this 392 will perform in the trails. From videos I've watched, it appears to perform really well. Agree with you though, not an issue for me as true off-roading will not be the primary purpose of my 392. I have the TJ for that.
 
Putting the defibrillator on this thread..... Have 200lb delta between the Steer & Drive axles. 51.6%/48.4% weight distribution..
- I was in the vehicle (215lbs)
- Gear in the back (ARB, WARN Recovery Kit, Go-bag, US Jack,/accessories, etc. - 150lbs)
- Nitto RG 38x12.5 spare on
- Full tank of gas

lol, you are over the GVWR of the vehicle on the door jam sticker. I hate rules and regulations.
 
Another one here that spends too much time at the gym... :)

Scale results surprised me. During backcountry travel this past summer (Colorado and Wyoming BDRs) I stopped by a truck scale. The front & rear were within 30# of each other:
Front axle 3110 lbs 50.2%
Rear axle 3080 lbs 49.8%

Driver
Full fuel
Fridge / tent / camp gear
5g extra fuel
Recovery gear / compressor
Winch/RSE steps/Teraflex hinge-carrier

Outcome of the trip was a switch from 1.5" spacers (F&R) to the AEV 2.5" Dualsport XP lift, with the goal of getting firmer springs better suited to the load, more up-travel to keep off the bump stops and more robust shocks. So far I'm happy with the results on and off-road.

Regarding scales, at least in much of the west, I've found pretty much all the state weigh stations leave their scales on while they are closed. Makes it easy to get a quick weight check whlle traveling. I do not stop while they are open.

Weighed mine ('21 non-XR) a couple of years ago. Full tank of gas without me inside:

Front: 3030 Lbs.
Rear: 2980 Lbs.
Full on: 6060 Lbs.
This includes several add-on's: MC skids, MC 3 1/2" lift, Warn winch, 37's, aftermarket rear steel bumper, RSE steps with additional armor, tools and compressor.

Numbers are reversed on mine (used the exit to enter)
All kinds of fun installed - JL370/aal drawers/fridge/generator/recovery gear/ GFC tent/2 fly rods and 2 glocks.
