The wire is 22 gauge....I don't have any way to weigh it though.
I can't measure the length either...but you can wind it on a tube that is 3" in diameter. The width of the roll is about 3/8" to 7/16" and the outer diameter of the finished roll is about 4 3/4". Two or three pieces of the wire are used to hold the spool of wire. If you roll one up, be sure to wrap the wire around that tube with those sections taped to the tube or you will never get the spool tight and neat. It can't end up being too WIDE as it fits at one end of the Ford box if you go that route.
Thank you for that Chuck
