I just happened to be reading the owners manual yesterday and it says that if you set the tailgate in the "1/2 open" condition to haul things like plywood and such then you need to add some support in the bed. It suggests laying a 2X4 across the wheel humps, using the convenient depression that they added just for that purpose. It then says that the depression in the sidewalls, between the wheel wells and the tailgate will hold two 2X4s stacked on edge. This supposedly provides a level "rack" with the tailgate - based on that I would say the wheel wells are somewhere around 10 inches tall?
the top of the 2x4 on top of the wheel wells is 7" above the floor of the bed. i'll try to find a photo.
here, https://www.jeepgladiatorforum.com/...n-all-my-life-gladys.19947/page-8#post-314206

i was wrong, 6 and 5/8" is what I measured from bed floor to top of 2x4.

How high is the hitch receiver off the ground?
The bottom of the hitch would be sitting exactly at 19” from the ground inside of the receiver on my stock Jeep Gladiator Rubicon Launch Edition (and the bed free of any cargo weight!!!)

The bottom of the receiver is 18 ⅝” high off the ground, just a little above the spare tire bottom.

Could you measure the distance between the driver side door handle to the center of the driver side rear wheel?

I am trying to get measurements for a JT with a 2.5" lift on 35's. Looking for the total height. I have a 2021 ordered and trying to figure out if I do a 2.5" lift and 35's, if I can still get it in my standard size garage. lol First world problem, I know.

Any help would be appreciated.

2018 JL Rubicon - On order
Does this measurement sound right?
- Bed floor to hardtop roof - 30.25" - I ask because I'm trying to find the overall interior height with a bed cap on.

I searched the thread and could not find (might have missed them):
- Just the height of the wheel well
- The distance from the bed wall to the wheel well
- Wheel well length - how much fo the bed do they take up length wise

If anyone has those please let me know!

Thank you!

Y'all have listed the height of a Rubicon as 73" (which is what I just measured at the dealership), but the jeep.com website lists it as 76.1" - anyone know about 3" difference? Worried I missed a roof top antenna - or does the regular AM/FM antenna stick up 76" perhaps?

Yes. It’s probably the regular antenna height. On my stock Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition I get just under 77” at the top of the antenna. My garage door is just high enough for the Jeep and sometimes the antenna is touching the lower part of the opened door but I still have a 2-3” clearance.

Thanks for confirming. Trying to plan out everything & have the JT fit in the garage before mine shows up...inches matter!

Hi. Can anyone please tell me the distance from the inside of a closed tailgate to where the cross 2x8 can be placed?
Meaning if I put the cross board there how big of an item can I fit between it and the tailgate.
Thank you.
