Double lifted On 35's

i was just wondering if anyone that is double lifted with 35's would be able to tell me what their rear bumper height is? I am just wondering because i am already at 27 with an aal and body lift on 33's. I wanted to take the aal off and put the superlift on with 35's but the legal bumper height limit is 30 inches here in pa and i dont wana go over.

blah... there was a guy from Pittsburg on here that used to own a double lifted truck, though on 33's, with the Superlift rear kit AND an AAL. Add a hitch and bam! That'll qualify as a bumper. Hell it holds up WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY better than the tin metal bumper would in a wreck. My truck's a living testiment of that! lol.


Add 3" for the Superlift kit(now at 30"), take away about 1.5" for the aal(now at 28.5"), add 1" for the 2" tire difference, and you're about 29.5" bumper height.



And honestly, Just toss in a set of Belltech 6400 shackles instead of removing the AAL and installing a new block ontop of your stock block. That's my setup and the truck sits dead level. Superlift gives you a 3" block to stack with your stock block....ewwwwwwwwww. I got that 3" by installing Belltech 6400 2" chevy drop shackles and a Procomp Short AAL and leaving my stock 2.5" block in there.

Lowest part of my bumper is at 29.5", my modified hitch is like 26 or something, so if the hitch counts then just get a hitch and your golden

I just have a AAL and belltech shackle. I sit an inch higher in the front based off fender to ground measurements
