Lift observation

Went into one of the dealerships here in town cause out front they had a lift 2008 1500 and I had to take a look.

4" Pro Comp lift
35 12.5 20 Toyo m/t's
20x8.5 064 Eagle Alloys

I didn't measure the distance from the door handle to the ground, but I did use my hand on my chest. And compared it to my truck with

3" BL
275 70 17 a/t's
2" front leveling spacer.

The dealership truck was about 1.5in taller than my truck, and the 35's looked stuffed.

When I got home I measured my door handle to the ground and it is 49", so the other truck must be around 51" or so.

Guess what I am trying to say is I am glad I went body lift rather than suspension for clearance,.. for when I get my 35's

mudchunker hit a photo on here if you could!!! I am interested in seeing the 3" bl with 2" spacers! And do you have a hitch on there and if so how did you get that to work?
