Help me understand this rather big difference in about 2.5 inches in ground clearance between Wrangler and Landrover Defender. The hole body (look at the door hight) are higher than the wrangler, but the axles should be lower with less high wheels.
I was always in love with the Defenders ground clearance but ordered the Wrangler because it is cheaper and more a modern vehicle. The Wrangler looks much lower.
The specs stock
Wrangler jk Ground clearance at best about 10.3 inches, rubicon at 10.2 inches
Landrover Defender Ground Clearance at best 12.72 inches.
So Defender have about 2.5 inches better ground clerance than the Wrangler JK.
On top of that the Defender have less high wheels compared to the Wrangler JK, according to specs.
Defender 235/85/16 at about 31.7 inches
Wrangler 255/75/17 at about 32.05 inches high
Maybee the Defenders body is raised, the vehicle is higher than the wrangler and would not fit my garage. Maybee the axles are smaller, but I doubt that, it weighs more than the wrangler.

Look at this movie at about 14 min, the ground clearance, the angles, bumper size the hight of the doors. Looks here that the landrover wheels are higher?
