GVW of a 90?

I found one online source that quoted a 90's GVW at 6504. Can anyone confirm if this correct? Checking for depreciation purposes. Thanks!!

1993 NAS D110;
Curb Weight: 4840 lbs. Gross Weight: 6504 lbs.

1995 NAS D90 SW;
Curb Weight: 3560 lbs. Gross Weight: 6003 lbs.

1997 NAS D90 ST;

That's the best information I could compile from searching around on the web, looking at brochures, etc.. take it for what its worth though..

I'm guessing that all you need to know is that it is over 6,000 lbs? I know it is, but your manual and the build tag should both list the information as well..

I am needing to make sure it is over the 6000 lb mark for a 97' model. I have not purchased yet, but am currently in the process of finding one. If anyone here has a chance and would not mind checking their build tag on a 97 I would greatly appreciate it.

By the way, anyone know if there is a GVW difference b/t a wagon and a soft top? I am leaning towards a wagon.

Taylor, is this the 179 deduction you're gunning for? Hey, if the GVWR of a SW/ST puts you at risk, a 110 may get you there with no limits until you exceed a max of $500K of 179 property/year. As I recall SUVs are exempt if designed for 9 passengers and meet some other misc cargo requirements. I'd be surprised a 110 could not be configured to meet the requirements if needs be.

Thanks for the additional info. At a GVW of 6001, the regular 90 is above the 6000lb limit that I need for the additional depreciation. I would love to go ahead and get a 110, but I'm not sure I want to spend the extra $$ to get it.
