Hi all I'm trying to accumulate a vast amount of measurements and specs for anything that can be built. Bumpers rock sliders tube fenders basically a schematic or measurements where things bolt to the frame eccetra anything can help. Thanks all. Any model any vehicle please verify.

Kind of saw a comment like this coming.

Czerbel- I don't know exactly what your intentions are, but people who have all these measurements don't usually just give them away unless its in their interest.
If you are trying to start a fabrication gig, offer a free or heavily discounted product to the testing vehicle's owner. That's how a lot of companies get their catalog of parts going.

I would think the design component would be an important part of the learning process. Sketch it out, make measurements, refine, mock it up, test fit, modify, test,and eventually final weld and finish.

But that's just my opinion.

See now that's the thing is ( and thank you for being polite I'm sorry to offend people I didn't kno it would.) I don't really have access to these cars so all I would really want is car spec like xj rocker panel is blank inches long and you rock slider would have to be blank inches from the frame then I can fully attempt the rest on my own. I just don't wanna go runnin up to people's cars in the Parkin lot and seeing there face wen I explain I'm just getting specs off there car

why do you need to make parts for vehicles you don't have?

For High school auto shop he should attempt to work a deal with a local auto wrecking yard and get a Cherokee at a reduced price. You know, as an educational aid.

Even if the dimensions were supplied to you by a random person, would you trust them enough to go on those dimensions, without being able to confirm yourself if they fit along the way? Measure, cut, tack, mock-up, rinse repeat, is a pretty essential part of building anything. You also have to account for variances in dimensions for the same model/year vehicles, which is why you see lots of bumpers/sliders etc that have slotted holes to make it all fit for a given vehicle.

Blah blah blah blah.
