I used excell but you cant attach an excell file on this site,  only jpeg,bmp, txt, and a few other styles.  I even tried to attach it in word but it wouldnt take that either.  I have the excel file with all the data in it if anyone wants/needs it I can email it.

I'll get my wheelbase when I get home tonight.

From the ground to the center of the crossmember, not the bottom of the spring hanger brackets.
Then what the heck is up with everyone's rig?? My tires only measure 35.875" and my height is nearly 4.5 inches higher than everyone elses..

If you remove my figure from the average, then the new average is 26.4975".
How is my truck 30.375" with 35.875" tires, when yotaboy79's rig is only 27.75" with 39.5" tall tires?
Sorry to point fingers at ya yotaboy, its just that you've got the largest tires out of the submitted values :gap:
He's got 1.8125" more tire height but his frame is 2.625" lower :headscratch:
That means that if we had the same tires, then his frame would be 4.4375" lower than mine, and I've got 4" springs installed.

What is everyone running, like factory front Toyota springs with a couple leafs removed or something? :yupyup: :joke:

To answer your question with regards to my rig:

3" fender cutting
Lots of firewall pounding
Rears up front, lowest possible, but going to try to go lower
Chevy Rears, about an inch or two too high, will lower later (including pivot "perches")
No bed, just have to worry about frame rubbing, which I fixed with 86 axle, 2" BS Wheels, 1.5" spacers.

Any questions? :greengrin:

i like my truck low and stable i have enouph problems keeping 4 wheels down

Yeah buddy, I wasn't trying to single you out, but yours was the best comparison for me. I have _ALWAYS_ argued that my truck is too tall for its axle width. I've got 4" Marlin springs and a 1" body. Originally the body lift was done to help the 3RZ intake manifold-to-brake booster clearance, but later I found out it is not necessary, but by then I had already installed a 1" body lift specific front bumper and mounted sliders high on the frame.

So I am pretty much stuck with the body lift unless I do some fab work to my body armor.

So instead of doing that, I would rather be wider and more stable, and still have the body and frame clearances that I have now :thumbs:

Of course the body lift has nothing to do with my frame measurements, but it is just REALLY surprising to me to see that I have one of the tallest frame measurements here :thud:

Height to front spring hanger – 30 ¾”

It's not really all that surprising since you have not had to cut your fenders yet. Your truck does sit pretty high, but you haven't rolled it yet so no problem.

So if you have a 4" lift and if you subtract the height difference of our front spring hangers minus our diff heights, then my lift = 0.7" with your truck having a 3.3" height difference in suspension. If that makes any sense.

BigMike's height difference between spring hanger and bottom of diff = 18.3"
MiniSimp's height difference between spring hanger and bottom of diff = 15.0"

Right? :dunno: My math may be all fubar'd

That is why I wanted the measurements of a bone stock truck, is so I could figure out my actual lift height.

Sorry to point fingers at ya yotaboy, its just that you've got the largest tires out of the submitted values :gap:

That means that if we had the same tires, then his frame would be 4.4375" lower than mine, and I've got 4" springs installed.

What is everyone running, like factory front Toyota springs with a couple leafs removed or something? :yupyup: :joke:

I'm running rears up front and some 52" Chevy springs in the rear. My tires are 39.5 Irok's but with practiclly no air they measure only 36 inches :(   With 15 psi they come up to just over 38 inches.  I know this has already been explained but I was gone for a few days and didn't have a computer with me!!! :screwy:

Hay mike if it make you feel better my springs are alcans that are suppose to have 7" of lift and they never really did (thank god) but if they did my #'s would be higher than your  :dunno:. You should put some chevys in the rear and some rears up front thats only what 3" of lift instead of 4" or just order some soft 4" alcans  :rofl2:
