    People should post their questions and others can hopefully measure for them if I don't already have the info in post 1.

    Of course ANY help is appreciated, but with a thing like data, you need to start with the best possible info when planning. What I mean by this is try to get accurate measurements. Use a straight edge if possible to measure the distances between two things. For example, to measure the bed height once I get my JT, i will lay a straight edge over both bed rails, then using a tape, measure from the top of any rib on the bed, and to where the bottom of the straight edge is. This would give you a good exact number for knowing if a cooler would fit under a tonneau cover for example.

    When measuring how far a tire sticks out from the fender, don't eye-ball it, put a straight edge like a yard stick across both sides of the sidewall, then measure from outer fender edge to the yardstick.

    It may sound silly as hell, but it only takes a few more seconds to obtain numbers this way.

    THAT BEING SAID, consider all these measurements on here to be +- a bit of error. This will be compiled with many people's help. Don't cut your fancy T track from 8020 without measuring yourself. This is just for as close to possible planning for other folks that either don't have your specific parts/vehicle, or maybe don't have ANY JT yet at all (llike poor old me).

    If you discover a measurement is way off, let me know please.

    But I did start this thread cuz I can't find the Rubicon height from ground to top of bed rail. Anybody?

    I'm designing a plywood topper and need to calculate some stuff for a fridge.

    is that measured from the top of the highest point on the bed? What i mean is that if there are raised ribs for strength, your item (like a cooler) will sit on top of that rib. The measurement should be from Top of that rib to bottom of tonneau.

    its like ~17 and 7/8in from the lowest spot on the bed. The ribs are about a 1/2in. So excluding the wheel wells, anything 17in or less should fit under the top of the railing, siting on top of the ribs.

    Iā€™m glad you started this thread, that was my exact question to see if I could park the truck bed under some cabinets in the back of my garage. I was short by an inch and had to do some rearranging/remodeling.
