Clearance heights
« on: March 19, 2018, 09:56:40 AM »
I've been wanting to do this for some time to see what kind of center clearance we all have on our rigs. Would like to see the difference in some rigs and compare tire sizes. Add make, skids, tire size, wheelbase. Measure lowest point on center skid.

Ben - TJ - 3.5" RE springs - Skyjacker bellyup skid - 37" tires - 95" wheelbase - 22" at lowest point on belly skid.

Maybe not as cheap as once thought.

Wouldn't lift height be a nice thing to add to your list for comparison?

Some custom lifts would be hard to put an exact number though...

My $.02, you should also measure clearance under front and rear chunks (those get hung up more than the belly IMO).

Make it so then. Was more interested in center heights.

Lifts are like Kevin said. Not looking for an exact detailed list. Just clearance under belly really, regardless of lift size. But add it to the list!

37 reds, so they measure close to 31

Tire PSI needs to be noted here like mentioned... I just measured 22" but I see a bulge in the tires, so I'm at least partially aired down.  I'll check exact PSI and update.
