STOCK TJ's! How high are your fenders? poll

So, post up how high it is from the ground to the bottom edge of your fender flare. Include your tire size. I want to get an idea of how much total height I have gained but lost my measurements from before. And this can also be used for reference by other lifted jeeps to figure out how much lift they have.

To find lift, take total inches from ground to fender, subtract the stock height that we determine with this thread, and then subtract half of the increase in tire size from stock to current tires.

EX.

55 inches -49 inches = 10 inches.

Tires went from 29 inches to 33. so 4/2 = 2

6-2 = 4.

Thanks for all the stock jeepers who help out

Aren't our fenders going to be different though? Yours are the Sahara flares and mine are the 60th anniversary flares.. they'll be different to the sport flares correct?

only in width, not in height.

don't know about the 60th aniversary flares but I doubt any height difference.

measuring from the ffront passenger fender flare right in front of the center of the tire (tape measure devided rim in half going from ground to flare) was 34.25 inches

measuring from the metal front fender below where the blinker is on passenger side is 29 inches.

my flares aren't stock so going from the front fender (which is the same for all of is TJ'ers other then tube fender guys) would probably be more accutrate.

i was on a dirt drive way so give or take .5 inches.

running 31s on stock suspension.
