If my BRAT did that, I would have water half way up my hood. Of course there is probably a good change that I have floated on top of the ice b/c the BRAT is so light.
MUST KEEP SAVING MONEY TO BUILD BIGGER.....

Ok not "FLOATED" considering it leaks like a crazy. It would have crossed it w/o breaking through. (But "FLOATED" sounds so much cooler.)
IIRC curb weight on BRAT is 2500 ish pounds (that's what my registration says)Curb weight on a Wrangler is 3229.
Found this nifty chart on-line about how much weight ice can hold.
My bro said that ice was about 6 inches thick. That's within the BRAT's weight now all I have to do is get the BRAT over to VA so we can wheel together.

The Army Corps of Engineers uses this formula for calculating how much weight ice can support:
h = 4 SQRT P
That is: h equals 4 times the square root of P
h is the thickness of ice in inches and P is the load in tons.
This is based upon hard, CLEAR ice.
Always use caution when on ice......vehicles are expendable....people aren't.

Just found out yesterday that my Pop just bought a Wrangler Unlimited.
