    I thought it would be informative to have a thread of heights everybody has gotten from their lifted components on their '05+ Tacoma's.

    If your stock post up your measurments too!

    Front Suspension: Bilstein 5100 shocks set to 0"/OME 885 Coils (3yrs old) & 1/4" Top Plate Spacer.

    Rear Suspension: 2" Alcan Add-a-Leaf/No TSB/No Block

    Tires: 265/75-16 BF Goodrich Mud Terrains T/A KM

    * Measurements taken from the center of the hub to the bottom of the fender
    Front:
    Right = 23" / Left = 23"
    Rear:
    Right = 25" / Left = 25"

    *Measurments taken from the ground to the bottom of fender thru axle line.
    Front:
    Right = 38" / Left = 38"
    Rear:
    Right = 39" / Left = 39"

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I'm in.... I'll edit this post when I take the fender to hub measurements. :)

    right now I know that the front of my truck from fender to ground is at 39" w/ 255/75R17's at about 1/2 tread.
    Front suspension:
    OME shocks w/ 885 coils and a custom machined top plate spacer and Light Racing UCAs. Sits at about 3.25" lift.
    Rear suspension:
    TSB leaves w/ Alcan Tundra AAL(~1.75" lift) and a 1" block. Bilstein 5100s w/ Toytec extenders for more droop.

    Only measurement I have so far is from ground to bottom of fender.

    Front - Billy 5100s at 2.5
    Measurement- 37 1/4"

    Rear- TSB, stock shocks
    Measurement- 37 3/4

    Tires are 265/75/16.
    I'm pretty sure thats right. I'll double check tomorrow.

    Thanks everyone so far but the most accurate way to measure is from the center of the hub to the bottom of the fender. This way we can take tire size out of the equation.

    I just like ground to fender because when i was trying to decide which lift was right for me I took peoples ground to fender measurements (tire size included)on here, and simply used jacks to "lift" my truck to their given measurements. Thats how I decided a 3" wouldnt be right for me but a 6" would. Its all in personal preference though.

    Why do you want it center hub up instead of ground up?

    Because when you measure ground up you have to take the size of the tires into place.

    all i know off the top of my head is the ground to fender measurements. I have 5100's set at .85 with eibach 1.6" lift coils and an AAL in the rear.

    Front: 38 7/8"
    Rear: 39 1/8"

    Those measurements were taken right after the new shocks and springs were installed, so well see how much the springs settle.
