To add to that, all the up travels in the rear! But really I’d bump the rear as high as you can. Make the tires touch the tops of the bedsides at full bump

lower link pivots are about 4" off the ground id say. Don't feel like mashing them into the ground too much and also the C pillar lands on top of the body mount which also limits up travel.

You want to keep tire compression in mind as well. If you plan on hucking the thing, you can lose that sidewall height in an instant and slam the chassis into the dirt. Send your spine straight down to snap city. Best to pretend the tires aren't there and measure ground clearance from the rims imo.

I agree, whatever we end up at itll be plenty for it, 18" bypasses will give us plenty of travel also to play with and tune, end of the day its just a play truck to fuck around with lol

You've seen how my truck plows, I squeezed every bit of up travel I could out of it and may have gone a bit too far haha.
