    yeah it's around there. ORU kit with junkyard 4" springs, so about 6-7". The pass side settled alot for some reason, it site quite lower than the driver's side. It rubs pretty good on that side, and can't trim too much more. If I can sell my f'n axle, it's going up a little so I can wheel without the fear of slicing the tires.

    After I got stuck, I said that's it, I NEED a winch. So if you got a winch, maybe we could work something out.
