when you open the front door there will be a metal tag revitied to the car body under the strike side of the lock. i think it is the biggest number.

If you are looking for the weight to match to the weight rating of the tires, you need to consider the loaded weight. That is likely equal to 1000 to 1200 lbs more than the weight of the empty vehicle.

I believe the maximum weight of the vehicle is listed on that plaque you no longer have, but I would be surprised if it is less than 4,000 or so lbs.

Hope this helps, Jim
