    What year model is it? I've got an 84 that is stock with 31x10.5 on it. If you want I could measure that for ya. Just specify what you mean by body line so I can get the right measurement. Or I can just measure from the ground to the bottom of the rocker.

    Beauty line = trim line!

    it's the only relative line I still have on my truck! The rackers are gone, the fenders are trimmed and it's the most constant item that's still there! Year, 84 will work! I would be most appreciative if you would measure that for me! Thanks!
    The problem with the tach section is it doesn't give adequate measuring points for highly modified trucks! I don't have stock bumpers, and the truck has no ground lines any more! Thanks though! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    16" from ground to bottom of rocker.

    Edit: oops, didn't see you don't have rockers /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif Not everybody can afford that fancy-ass trim! /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Anywhere else I could measure to?

    Do you know that bend in the sheet metal, right above the wheel wells that go all the way down the side of the vehichle and is supposed to be straight! That is the line I'm refering too...... Can I please get a measurement from the line on the front fender to the concreate, and from the line on the rear corner panels to the concreate.... That would be great!!!!! thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Bruce, I have a stock 1980 beat to crap Blazer sitting in the shop with bald P235 15" tires on it. The front measuires 39.5" and the rear measures 43". There is not lift just old age on this crate.

    OH, gotcha. I'll measure in a few if you still want me to, or is 45acp's measurement good enough for your purpose?

    do you still have the stock bumpstops? if so thats the most accurate way to measure lift. from the axle tube to the bumpstop mount face. unless your wanna know how high combined with bigger tires. my truck was 9" in front. dont remember what it was in back, i could find out tho
