Nice to finally have solid numbers. It's smaller than I expected. Any word on height? Planning on potentially doing a roof rack and a lift. Wondering how much space I have to work with before I take out the garage door.

We knew a length increase was inevitable. That it is nothing near the rumored 8in makes me very happy. Road manners should be well improved over the 3rd Gen via the increases to wheelbase and track. Really the only thing this doesn't tell us is the turning radius.

The door tag is really cool, but why have dimensions for both Jeeps? If I have a JLU, then just put a jamb tag in showing the unlimited specs, the two door info would be irrelevant.

Tag is located on the tailgate if anyone was wondering.

The length should make the interior a touch more comfortable too hopefully! 2.4” to wheelbase should make it more stable on road and safer!

The wider track is for the Rubicon models? Sport and Sahara will most likely be unchanged from JK?

The track width for the JK Rubicon, Sport and Sahara models were all the same no (61.9 inches)?
I guess my question is since the JL Rubi has wider axles, does that mean the track and overall width is greater than the JL Sport and Sahara or do the Rubi wheels have more offset so the track and width is same as Sport and Sahara? Does the Rubi get wider fenders than Sport?

I wonder if this dimension plate is specific to each model or the same for all three models.

@JAY - Any thoughts on how the "wide" M220 axle plays into the track number?

Unfortunately it all comes down to cost. The tailgates are the same on the two models so in order to save time they just add specs for both.

For full size 11 a-side pitches, FIFA defines minimum dimensions of 45m x 90m and max dimensions of 90m x 120m. For official matches or international competition, FIFA has set minimum football pitch measurements to 64m x 100m and max to 75m x 110m.
I often wondered...Huh?

Pretty happy about the water fording depth.. My buddy killed his rear diff and seized his engine crossing about 30 inches of water in his Cherokee Trailhawk last month.. I guess he should've checked the depth before plunging.

Glad to see the rumored 4" additional width is a no-show.
