Dan was a strong 6' 3" but occasionally (only very rarely) wore thicker heeled boots to reach that magic 6' 4". Alongside massive villains on "Bonanza", such as 6' 6" Don Megowan, Dan's sheer size (bulk and muscle) overcame the actual visual height comparison to his taller opponents.

193cm - 194 cm . My opinion is 194cm

Yeah even seeing weak 6'3 maybe 6'2.7 area because in all seriousness he was a solid 3 shorter than Clint Walker in Cheyenne. It could look 3.5. Maybe blocker wasn't in lifts while Walked had inch advantage. Who knows.

6'3" for sure... looked a solid 2" shorter than 6'5" actor Bruce Yarnell in "Hound Dog" episode of Bonanza.

Probably a strong 6'3. Its hard to say because other members may had lifts on bonanza. I think Pernell Roberts didn't wear lifts and blocker didn't as well.
