    Looking for a few measurements so i can try to keep my k5 legal. There is a limit on high you can go. So i need some measurements so i dont lift to much and have the headlights up to high. Second is so the short gf dont complain when its to high.

    So could somone measure the top of the front fender lip and top of the rear fender lip with 6 inchs of lift with no trimming and a decent size tire. I havent measured stock hieght yet, although in the lmc catlog it mentions stock height is 32 inchs at the top of the fender lip and 34 at the top of the rear lip qauter.



    Thanks Jason

    That's exactly right. There's more to it than just lift.
    Mine is at 41.5" in front (to top center of fender opening) and 42" in back. This is on an '86 Blazer, 4" lift, 36" tires, and 3/4 ton axles. All those things will affect your end result.
    This should give you an idea though.
