    My 89 with 7" and 36's rocker panel comes almost to my waist...bout half way up the thigh....I'm 6'2". I've had numerous friends under 5'2" and they have no problems getting in with a little jump.

    You can measure to your floorboard now, then add 6" for the lift and however much more for the increase in tire height, then you'll have it.
