    Did you lose or gain any ground clearance with the drop bracket? Not including the tires of course.

    The drop bracket gives clearance for larger tires and ground clearance is gained.

    This is my sons truck and as the build progressed we posted so those that may like the look/products at a given stage, we took the time and shared! We are Toyotaholics!

    Here is a snap shot of the stages... and this thread shows how it currently sits.

    Thank you!

    Back in the day you only had magazines to try and get an idea of what your rig would look like with a lift and tire combo... the internet you just google it and get an idea, that is why we are always posting... and it just adds to time spent with the sickness! lol

    Larger tires = ground clearance gains.

    You can fit larger tires on non drop bracket suspension, including stock suspension. It cancels out.

    Doesn't drop bracket hang lower than stock cross member, therefore losing clearance?

    The lowest point is your rear diff, and that doesn't come into play with the type of lift. And, 35's may cancel out to a degree for the crossmember area etc, but I can't see the difference between a 3 inch coil and 33's being far superior to a CM drop and 35's in terms of clearance. If anyone is convinced it is, then maybe OP can take some measurements and you guys can compare?

    But you can easily put 35s on a coil lift and far benefit
