The YJ is 74", the '48 is 66", the '52 is 69". Never measured the wagon, but it won't be a tuff trail rig, just for the easy trails.

Well I finally measured my full size Blazer with stock width 3/4 ton axles, Dana 44 front is wider than 14 bolt rear. 36x13.50-15 Irock tires on 8 inch wheels with four inch backspace and it comes out to84 1/2 inches. Should add an inch or so when I do the weld on beadlocks.

I had no idea it was so much wider than the others that voted. But the poll on NWW seems to be wider than this one.

If you think about it and look at a tape measure it's only ten inches? When you look at ten inches in comparison to a truck, jeep, SUV. etc... it's so small... but if you compare ten inches to other things it's very large!

The other thing to think about is that your body on the K5 is probably almost as wide as your axles...I would bet a lot of the rigs on NWW are running full width axles on a jeep/toyota/tube chassis. However, we do have a few folks in WA that run a full width/full size rig...you should check out the guys over on KrazyK5

Well, this website I would be in the majority. The trailer has wheel wells so that's why it's a tight squeeze- especially since the last modifications to my jeep the spacers take it out a bit.
I like the ability to get through tight places without leaving a mark- not always a possibility- I understand

My trailer is 82" between the wheel wells...I think that is pretty standard for trailers these days. I see you fell into the 71" - 74" catagory on this poll...you must have a little narrow trailer.
