Measure from the center of the wheel to the edge of the fender. Stock non upcountry measurement should be 18 inches. If you had upcountry, stock measurement is 19 inches.

EDIT: speedbucket beat me to it lol

Stock its like 18inches to the fender and center of the wheel. You should be at 21in or so with the jeep sitting on the ground.

no, and if the springs have been replaced then the Upcountry package mentioned above doesn't matter either
