    question for people who run 6\"/35\'s

    Could anyone who runs a six inch lift and 35 inch tires please do me a favor?
    i am planning this combo for my truck but I am wondering about bumper height. The cops around here are cracking down around here lately. Could anyone tell me the hieght from the ground to the bottom of each bumper?(Front/rear)
    if you can, also tell me if the bumpers are stock or not.

    thanks for the time and trouble to dig for a tape measure and to go outside and measure. you guys are all the best.

    You could also use a 4" lift with 35" tires and do some fender trimming, you would be suprised at the room a sawzall can make, if you do it right, it can even look stock.

    I've got a 4" lift and 35" tires on my 81. The bottom of the bumper is 26" front and rear. I am not using stock bumpers anymore, so I measured to the center of the upper headlight for comparison. (I have the 4 headlight frontend) To the center of the upper headlight is 46". Hope this helps you somewhat.

    I've got a six inch lift and im running 39 inch tires(yes the rub, got them VERY cheap so until I get new ones theyll do, besides its summer and not doing much wheeling right now)Sitting on level ground its 30 1/2 inches to the bottom of the bumber and 37 1/2 to the top of the bumber. Its a stock rear bumber my trucks a 78k5. Where im from the cops measure the distance from the ground to the bottom of the low beam headlight. I think the limit is 54 inches. They dont inforce it but thats how its in the rule book. Hope this helps.

    I think some states measure from center of the main headlights(low beam) down. I got tagged for that.

    Re: question for people who run 6\"/35\'s

    ok... I've got an '89 jimmy w/6" lift (Tuffcounty 6" springs in front w/ODR's HD shackles and a kustom 6" shackle flip in the rear). I'm running 35x14x15 (true dia. on front is 33 1/2") Ground Hawgs w/little tread in the rear.

    Stock front bumper hight from center- 30 1/4"
    From both headlights it's 47 1/4"
    Stock rear bumper left of plate bracket- 26 1/4"

    Note- my left rear tyre was a little low and my driveway is not all that flat. Give about 1/2" on those measurements.


    Have been stuck (once) as of 8/12/00
    "(2H) Where's all the mud?.(4H)...(4L)..(4H)... oh crap"
