JL interior dimensions for sleeping

I've searched this forum and around the web as best I could and haven't found the information I'm looking for. Simply this. What are the interior dimensions of a JL Unlimited? In particular, what is the distance from the inside of the rear door to the back of the front seat? Obviously I'm trying to figure out if it is long enough for me to sleep comfortably in. If it is under 6'6" has any tall person here taken out the front passenger seat and gone that route?

Sorry a question is my first post.

On the 4 door version with the front seats all the way forward you have about 6' from the back of the seats to the rear door. There is a company (https://www.deepsleep4jeeps.com/) that makes a blow up mattress that is designed to fit specifically in that area.

Thank you for the information and link. Looks like I'd have to take the front seat out as diagonal sleeping is not an option as I will have camp equipment, a cat and a dog. Or I could just cough up the money for an Ursa Minor top.

You really take your cat camping? Don't think I've ever had a cat tag along on any of our rides

The Ursa Minor are nice, our friend has used one for several years.

In our 4 door JK I built a platform about 9 inches off the deck. It's secured by the bolts where the rear seat goes and the tie down bolts in back (plus a few ratchet straps for good measure). Supplies go underneath and we sleep on top. The deck makes it easier on my dog, he likes the height better and there's plenty of room for him to move around. Your cat would probably like to see out the window too

This is version 2 I'm working on, made out of a couple of old server racks. I still have to sand off the glue, paint and reapply the foam flooring to it. I have a tie down in the center for the dog's safety harness, but it sits flush once the foam floor is installed. The foam floor gives the dog great traction when we're bouncing around on the trails. We use a couple of thermarest for additional padding while we sleep.

Kitty actually loves traveling after the first day. Right now I have a Dodge Ram and a bumper pull trailer so they ride up front with me when we go on trips and she stays in the camper when Elle (my dog) are out on hikes. I think the likes the trips because every time we move she gets a new view out the window.

But I'm thinking of downsizing so I can go further off paved roads. The options I'm considering are the JL alone, with an Ursa Minor top, or with an off road tear drop. Even if I do the Ursa Minor or trailer, I still want enough room to sleep in the car for short trips. I wouldn't be taking many highly technical trails. The setup would be just so we have more boon docking options. Sometimes we are on the road for three or four months at a time.

I like your idea of a raised platform. That opens up a lot of storage underneath. Here are my two girls in the camper. Spoiled.
