Thanks,
I assumed someone would provide that info... and I could do the math
I'm planning on 255-40-17 which is about 25" outside diameter
3 inch block under the axle puts the bottom of the frame about 7 1/4" off the ground

Hi guys
anyone want to give me a heads up on some frame measurement for given tire diameter?
I'm looking for simple tape measurement of:
-bottom of frame off the ground
- gap between top of axle and bottom of frame (I can figure out how high to notch up)

trying to work out measurements for c-notch and shock placement off the axle and the 4-link I'm fabricating... truck is currently gutted... just trying to figure out what to shoot for,
I will be "best buds" with anyone who helps me... and I promise I will be giving back to the community with a build thread, part numbers, and pics...
Cheers again,
my current plan is 255-40-17's (25" OD) and 17x9.5 +18 RPF1s

I'm not sure if I should be asking this somewhere else...since no one is responding, just thought this group guys would know the answer... ; )
would you like a picture of my work in progress...?
... would that help get an answer?
2 minutes with a tape measure could literally save me hours....

I don't mind being 2 inches off, but if I'm off my 3/16"... oiy
If I don't get a response by tonight.. I"ll just go for it..

cheers for now,

LookIin good, yours is defiantly one of my favorites on the site.... Where did you get you side mirrors?
Thanks, my truck still runs good after 10 years of boost. Swapped side mirrors with a friend who has a 04 taco. It fits, just had to drill a hole for the adjustment handle/tickler.
