Looks great and timely for me. What is the distance from the ground to the high spot of each (F/R) wheel arch?

26" F and 27 1/8" R.

Keep in mind that I have a front coilover suspension and have it lowered about an inch. In the rear I have lowered leaf springs with a 1" taller shackle. After the HRPT I will go back to the stock shackle to see how it looks with 1/2" less.

Edit: My tires are about 27" tall.

Thanks. I have the SoT coil overs up front and 4 1/2 leaf mid-eyes in the rear. I am thinking my tires are 26"-ish. Appreciate the reply. My next move...
