Not perfect scaling, but I tried to get them close, then scaled to hit the known wheelbase specs.
4th gen 4runner exact same wheelbase as 5th gen, just had a pic of mine to throw in for fun :)
Mocked up the Bronc with 112" based on someone else's best guess here...

When Administrator gives you a thumbs-up on a 112" 4-door wheelbase, I think you can take that to the bank.

What's everyone's educated guess on the 2-door WB?

We didn't get any good side shots IIRC, but subtracting the suicide door on the Frankenranger puts it at about the same as the Wrangler 2-door.

Personally I'd prefer about 104" but it looks a lot more like 96-98"

This was the only side-on shot of the 2 door frankenranger afaik.

Looks about right to be 2-door wrangler sized.

I'm confused what did you use to determine 112 inch, why are the others material in your estimate?

the 112 has been determined from multiple mules and proto's extrapolating from wheel size. the others are relevant as to show relative lengths as compared to other SUVs in this segment.

104” would be perfect IMO, would give you a little extra storage and space for passengers in comparison to the JL 2DR.

Personally I want the wheelbase and total vehicle length as short as possible. <100" for sure. So if it comes in around 2 door wrangler that would be great. Guess we'll wait to see a 2 door prototype, hopefully we won't be waiting too long.

I always thought the "magic" number off-road was always at least 100". I know most guys try to "stretch" the TJ to 103".

Frankenranger was a two door mule.
