    My K20 has a 6” BDS all spring lift kit and with street tires (32”) it will just clear getting into my garage 7’ door. With my 37” swampers I would say about 7’1” - 7’2”.

    Just a follow up, the top of cab ended up being 7’-2”. That’s 6” Rough Country, with 37’s. I was going to do an add a leaf, but chose to do front and rear springs.
    Other than a few loose ends to finish, it’s turning out really nice! Thank you everyone for the input

    Thanks for the shout out and compliments !!!!

    It is a 6” ORD lift on 35” tires. The rims were 15x12. I have since swapped the rims for steel 15x10. Much much better.

    FYI.

    ORD does not measure the lifts by top of can measurements. The measure from the bottom of the bump stop bracket (front) to the top of the axle tube.

    Either way 6” custom ORD spring and 35” tires ..... you will still rub on full flex.

    Cheers

    I don’t what brand of wheels those are. All I know is they were 15x12” aluminum. I powder coated them black at work.
