    31" for me, or an old 33x12.50 mt fits under there pretty good. Used 4" Tuff Country EZ Rides. No body lift or zero rates. Worn out body mounts too. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Don't ya think another 600+ lbs of your Big block when you put it back in, will weight that sucker down some more, giving a little less clearance?
