    I was wondering how much clearance everyone has and what their lowest point is.

    I have a tad over 9in, lowest point is under my All Pro IFS skid.

    Stock Tire and Wheel Set up, no lift.

    interesting... i had taken all these measurements a few meeks ago.

    here are my clearances for my stock 4x4
    LCA = 9.0"
    skid plate = 8.5"
    exhaust pipe = 8.5"
    rear diff = 9.0"

    those are what i remember off the top of my head. i measured other places under the truck too, but i dont remember the values.

    Stock MUD FLAPS are probably the lowest point.

    shinanigans chris simple shinanigans ha ha.

    Yea sorry. I guess I should be more clear, other than your tires, mudflaps, exhaust, etc, what part of your truck that you might get stuck on is closest to the ground and how much clearance do you have at that point. Ie, skid plate, rear axle and so on.

    For me its the skid since I have the TSB springs it holds the rear a tad higher. I always scrap rock with the front but never the rear.
