    Okay I am trying to get some numbers on the roof height of a blazer depending on a few variables. I took rough measurements and thats all that I really need along with some basic variables. Here is how I measured mine from the ground to roof @ rear window, ground to roof @ front of driverside door.

    Lift:
    Tire size: ( just what they claim to be not real height)
    Axles:
    Rim Dimensions:
    Ground - roof (rear):
    Ground - roof (front door):

    Lift: stock
    Tire size: 31" x 10.50
    Axles: 10 bolts
    Rim Dimensions: 15 x 10
    Ground - roof (rear): 72" (6ft)
    Ground - roof (front door): 73" (6ft one inch)

    I am just looking for rough measurements to get a avg number. It really took me 5min to walk to my truck grab a tape measure and walk back inside. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    86 K5. 4" procomp lift (springs front, blocks rear) 35" BFG muds fairly new, and 10 bolt axles. 79" at the roof above front door, 80" at the back. Just so you know how I measured I layed a 2x4 across the roof and measured from the ground to it, so fairly accurate

    Thank you! thank you! thank you! Those of you that have a few spare moments this weekend I would really appreciate it. I will compile this info and I'm sure it will be useful to others at some time or another. Man some of these rigs are becoming much taller than I ever expected the roof lines to be.

    Brady...mine is 58 1/2" at the tailgate. That's with my hardtop on and probably 200 lbs of junk in the back of the truck.
