    do a really need my rear wheel-wells when i've got a 6" lift and i don't go offroading? i'd have about 11" of room above the tires with no rear wells (just a flat surface) and i'd have a lot more rear-bed space.

    has anyone tried this, or know about how much room you typically need above the rear tires?

    thanks,
    alex

    this is where a ramp test is required
    the number is completely unimportant but the clearance issues it shows is the purpose
