****, never thought about it, but my width(72") is almost as much as my length (82")!!!!!:naughty1::ImaPoser:

Ok Sick Chest cold and All you Sparked My Courosity, So I grabed the Tape and Sure enough

My Sammy with the Swamppers on, (I don't know the Back Spacing or rim size I bought them off a Members Jeep so I didn't ask) Mine it 67" Wide and 81 Long

The Wifes Sammy with Toyota axels is 72" wide and 81" Long Strange to hear that.

Shoot when the elbe restrictions came up I measured her S10 Blazer and it was 76" Hub to Hub (cause they stick out further than the tires) and 107 Long.. It have D44 front and D60 rear...

Here is what I have parked in the garage:

2000 TJ (belongs to the little lady)
74.5" outside of tire F/R
D30 F & D44 R
15x8 wheels w/3.5" BS
body is 59" wide
94" ish wheel base

1978 CJ7
74.5" F & 73" R
Narrow Track waggy D44's
15x8 wheels w/3.5" BS
body is 59" wide
94" ish wheel base

Orange Unit
80" F & 79.5" R
D60 F & 14bolt R
17x9 wheels w/6" BS (1" wheel spacers)
body is 53" wide
106" wheel base

The TJ is her daily driver. The CJ7 was replaced by the orange rig & now sits in my garage collecting dust. The orange rig is more capable & will keep the passengers safer in a roll.

I really think that the short, narrow body on my orange rig makes it easier to weave between the trees. The overall axle width has not been an issue.

I had previously posted this info on the old forum...there was some good discussion there:
