RCD Measurements Please!

I was just curious if someone with an RCD Suspension and 33 inch tires could take a few measurements for me. I would greatly appreciate it! I just used that pic for a reference. Nice truck BTW....

How is it that your C is the same measurement as the B & D. It looks like the RCD crossmember has the most clearence right in the center?

B and D are pointing at the holes where the t-bars used to go so they should be the same. the middle of it is 4 more inches higher

So did you mean to say that C = 16 inches then? Since you said the middle is 4 inches higher then the holes for the t-bars? just noticed that when you first posted yourC says 12' 4".....im confused on that????

Ok i think im getting myself confused. Does anyone have a better picture of the front of a RCD lifted ranger that is more straight on. When i look at the picture it looks like A & E sit a lot higher then B & D but when whiteo5xlt measured it's actually lower to the ground....im not sure how that makes sense????

Im just trying to figure out how much ground clearence there is at those 5 locations with the RCD lift and 33 inch tires.

OK i found a better pic that shows the front end of the RCD Kit. I see how A & E sits lower now that i have the better pic that is more straight on and not at an angle. Can a few more people measure theirs so i can compare numbers. Even if you have larger then 33 inch tires!
