05 Stumpjumper vs. 05 Trek 8000

I have ridden both and am cannot make the decsion. I plan on upgrade the brakes to juicy 7's so that is not a concern. What do these bikes weigh, what other bikes should i consider before i make my decision, and what are the differences between the two?

I was in a similar conflict and chose the stumpjumper because of the better price especially considering the components. I am still in the process of purchasing the stumpjumper, but I got a great deal on it b/c the 05's are closing out now (less than $1000).
