Will the T3X fit across the back seats? I'm trying to decide between a T4 on the roof rack or a T3X in the back seats and measurements aren't quite telling the whole story.
If you lay it across the back seat, the armrests in the door might get in the way, depending on how the poles are laying. It will lay across the floor in front of the back seat and allow the doors to close without force, though it definitely is a snug fit.

Awesome, that's what I needed to know. Thank you so much!

Not sure on the roof top tent thing, but we've been vehicle ground camping for years. Couple tips I've picked up along the way (not Jeep specific) are pack everything in totes (they're water proof and stack nicely), self inflate sleeping pad is best comfort to size/weight ROI, and a good cooler just for holding ice and nothing else pays dividends (pull ice out say one/twice a day tops to cheaper coolers with the food/drinks).

Tents rarely fit back in their original bags, we have a tote just for tent, extra tarps, extra guy wires/stakes, battery lantern, and bug spray (trust me on this one). We have the Coleman Octagon 98, it good size, at 6'2" I can stand in it, has 360 degrees of open windows for the day, and not too $$$. https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Octagon-Full-Rainfly-Signature/dp/B00I2SZWNC
