Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Ever since Jeep began producing vehicles in the 1940s, the brand was focused on utility and creating vehicles with purpose. Whether you have a Jeep Wrangler or an older Civilian Jeep, the wheelbase will be different for each and every model.

A vehicle's wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front axle and the center of the rear axle. Knowing your Jeep's wheelbase is important as it helps determine the breakover, departure, and approach angles.

While 2-door Wranglers will have a short wheelbase (SWB), the 4-door Wrangler Unlimited will have a long wheelbase (LWB). Short wheelbases are great for rock crawling and maneuvering through tricky off-road situations. Long wheelbases have better stability, which comes in handy when climbing steep hills on the trail.

For a quick reference to some of the most popular Jeep wheelbases, check out the chart below. It includes Jeep Wrangler wheelbases as well as the figures for older models including the Willys Wagon and Wagoneer.
