I'll be adding a leaf to my front pack, that will put me right at that your height :) . You compensated for tire size?

I didn't count tires, just the distance between the bottom of the diff and the front hanger.

Maybe some peple get the frame measurement wrong, is it the bottom of the frame or bottom of the door? Im getting conflicting measurements with different peoples measurements. Maybe frame height is different on diff years...

For this measurement it is the bottom of the frame, definetly not the door.

What is the height of the center of your headlight? Mine is 39.5in.
Finally got to this. :gap:

With the 37's aired up to 25psi (street pressure) the center of the headlight is 39" even.
