    This thread is to encompass as much lift height information as possible to help those that are looking for it.
    Please post up your tire size, lift details, wheel well measurement, top cab height, etc.


    I found the below pictures on another forum. Thank you Steve G PW.

    Here is a comparison to my RW with Toytec leveling spacers and P285/70R17 Nitto Terra Grappler tires:

    7.5" between top of truck and garage
    14 3/8" Frame under front door
    38" - front wheel well
    7 3/6" - front ww gap
    39 3/4" - rear wheel well
    8 5/8" - rear ww gap
    77" - true max height (level at highest point)
    14.5" - clearance front bumper
    32 1/16" - top front bumper
    29 3/4" - top rear bumper
    55 9/16" - top of bed rail centered over rear tire
    8 5/8" - rear diff clearance
    12" - gas tank skid clearance

    The spreadsheet below is a good comparison between lifts and tires:

    Depends on your skill set. @csuviper did it himself.

    It's really not that hard. You lift the front but let the front suspension extend out. Disconnect sway bar and steering. Then remove the coilover and replace with new. Rear is easier as you let the rear axle droop and remove the shock and u bolts. Replace shock, add shim and replace u bolts.

    Anyone with stock truck at the moment want to provide the measurements on the table in post #5. I would like to know start point and actual lift heights. This would help everyone understand what their lift coilovers are truly set at. 2nd Gen and 3rd Gen needed.

    I will measure Sean's 3rd Gen with 3/2 soon if we can find time to meet up.

    Hey guys, I have a stock 2015 trd 4x4. Found this really interesting since I'm in the beginning stages of researching a 3-4 inch lift kit. Here's my measurements. Measured twice to be as accurate as possible.
    Front wheel well 36 15/16
    Front ww gap 6
    Top of front bumper 27 3/4
    Rear ww gap 8 13/16
    Top of rear bumper 30 1/4
    Top of bed rail 55 14/16
    Max height 75.5
    Hope this helps
