Topic tags/keywords: jeep yj tj wrangler monster truck dimensions

I’ve finally got around to making two wooden Jeeps for my nephews who asked for them ages ago. Thankfully I found a book with plans for a monster truck, but a 1948 Ford. I’m using the plans for the bottom half of the truck but have to come up with the “Jeep” part on my own.

After searching online I could only come across some general measurements for height (although it wouldn’t apply to a monster truck Jeep), width, length, and wheelbase. I’m hoping someone who owns a Jeep would be so kind as to take a few quick measurements?

I think the dimensions indicated in the picture below are the only ones I’d need to construct the Jeep.

Thanks!

Hi. Can’t help you out with a TJ or YJ, but here’s what I got for a JK. A= 50.5” B=23” C=52” D= 56” E, I had to guess at because mine is a 4 door. Knocking off the extra door I got 76” guess-ti-mate for E for the 2 door. F= 47”

Do a Google Image search for ‘jeep wrangler dimensions’ and a lot of line drawings with measurements pops up. ou may need to extrapolate a couple of the dimensions you need idf they aren’t listed based on using a ruler and calculator to scale things.

Hope this will help, let me know if you would like more dimensions.
