Truck measurments, add yours.

This is just for everybody who wants to know how high or slammed other peoples trucks are. You all know the camera can be deceptive and no one knows how high things are because everyone takes pics from different heights. So, I'm curious to see just how BIG or LOW you guys' trucks are.

2005 Ranger Edge

Tire height: 33"
I Bottom of grill surround: 38 1/4"
H Top of front fender opening: 44"
G Bottom of rocker panel: 27 1/2"
F Window sill: 57"
E Top of roof: 79"
D Top of rear fender opening: 45 1/2"
C Top of bed: 57"
B Bottom of rear bumper: 30"
A Top of tailgate when down: 40 1/2"

ALL of my lift components are in my signature, post what you have.
Also, feel free to add any other truck measurements you feel are important.

make this easier, use paint

take a pic of a ranger, draw where you want messured and label A, B, C etc


and maybe have them post their vehicle spec (sort version) and lift/lower kit

Maurice, I didn't figure you'd have me beat by 2", your truck must be huge.

BUMP, I'm interested in seeing Zabeard's and Edge_wannabe's and Dub's bagged truck. I'm sure others are interested in seeing other trucks.

I know you got bigger tires, or I got tires that are too small I got some 36.5" procomps I'm throwing on when I get some adapters. Are you going to be sitting bulldog with those coils or you got something different for the rear?

I lifted it a few inches too. Sits real nice now. But that will all change with the D44.

BTW I cant take the BL off unless I really re-engineer everything.

I forget what site i saw it on but people were measuring height by stacking cans of soda, beer, etc. I thought it was pretty cool.

haha, only reason why my truck is a street queen at the moment is b/c it's my DD, I ened it for work/my atv, and I can't afford to fix another tranny or whatever else goes wrong.

If I get a DD...well...it won't be blue anymore.

aren't you getting 36/7's? I'm probably going to just get 35s, I'm lowering the truck a little (putting the 2" block back in instead of the 3" slanted block (pinion is +4 degrees right now). I want to have the 3" regular block...we'll see.

I got a set of 36.5 procomp X-terrains that I just need some wheel adapters for. Those are only going on if gas continues to come down. If it goes back up I'm dropping it down by uncranking the torsion bars and taking the blocks and shackles out, down to an inch above stock height and putting 28's on. But all-in-all I'll end up with 35's as DD tires, 37's as show tires, and 28's as FUEL ECONOMY tires and some 4.88's gears for the rear.

I like those new xtreme mud terrains, decent price from 4wp and their 35 runs a little big...
