Scrambler Wood Rails : Specifications and Measurements

This page is intended to document information related to the Wooden Side Rails available on the Jeep Scrambler. It is always a work in progress and if anyone has any information that should be added to this, please let me know

Rail Measurements
Length : 58 3/4"
Width: 5 3/4"

The rails mount to the rollbar in front via 2 tapped holes. The back mount is more complicated. The rail attaches to a wood bracket with 2 wood screws. The bracket is secured to the body with 2 mounting bolts.

The thickness of the box is @ 3/16". It's purpose is to offset the rail on the roll bar to provide a level surface.

The other 2 holes in Exhibit D are used to attach the rail to the bracket. I did not give exact measurements for these because you will want to make sure the rail is level and these can be adjusted. These other 2 holes are countersunk and 1" wood screws are used to hold the rail to the bracket.
