First off, my truck is NASTY .. been raining the last 2 days. Second I'm not trying to imply my truck is one of the lowest, I know it's not .. I was just curious where everyone else sat at. I find it strange that we can have the same trucks, same size tires and some trucks will go lower than others while some others won't :think:

Aired out, about 24 3/4"


Just a bit over 1 1/2"


Nasty fenderwell ... my tire is hitting on the purple area, which slopes down to the fenderlip .. I think if my tires cambered in more I would be more in the green area which is higher .. does that seem about right?

Hmm I sit at 48.5" or so, I bet if I let all the air out of my tires I would be at like 42ish, that count? :crazy:

Well I see in that pic you do tuck rim. I'll have to measure my stuff tomorrow and see how low I sit.
Please! I'd be interested to see how much your fenderwells helped :head:

Yeah, I understand that, but it's not like my back end is up at full lift either, when I can do that I'm sure my air dam will be closer to the ground too.

Ride height is roughly equal to a 7/10 drop, but if I'm carefull it can be lower. Never botherd to take any other measurements. Once it drys out if I remember I'll get some more.


EDIT
Well, since I'm a dumbass and didn't realize you were asking about aird out height, I'll have to measure.

i thought you weren't sitting that low due to camber issues? I am tucking like an 1/8 inch of rim front and back(maybe a bit more but who cares). I guess i'm pretty low for not having anything cut.

Well I never said I wasn't sitting low, just that when I was aired out my tires were touching my fenderwells .. and I thought it might be because my tires weren't in the "sweet spot" of the fenderwell where it had more room for tire. I'm just trying to get a comparision with ya'lls trucks so I can see what I might can do in the future to improve mine ... for one, add me to the waiting list for a pair of Justin's fenderwells :worship:

Hell yeah your truck is low, your truck is one of the big reasons I wanted to bag mine :worship: .. Justin's truck was the big reason I went with the Maxim Rims :worship: ... or else I would have went with my original idea of Vanguards which now I'm glad I didn't since they look too much like factory Dodge 20s.

Measure what? Yours is easy .. spoiler meets ground :LOL: ... if you want to get technical, I guess you could get a feeler gauge and slide it under your spoiler and see what gap you can fit :crazy:
