With new isolators and some new 4.5'' coils you should be around 22-23'' front and 23-24 rear. Check out the submit your wj pics sticky and you should have a good idea of what your setup will look like. I guess you won't encounter as many rocky trails in Alabama that require lots of travel like here in Colorado, so the setup you are looking at should fit your needs well.
I feel so stupid now.
: Just wasn't thinking this morning.
I've looked and I've seen maybe 2 people that have the Clayton 4.5" and 285's. I'm a bit frustrated at the fact no one could provide some measurements that I could use to find out the belly and bottom door sill height.
Someone around here has the Clayton lift and 285's and a really nice trim job. Probably exactly what I'm going to do so I'll have plenty of room. Can't seem to find his build thread right now...

Thanks! Definitly would love to test drive that since it's very similar to the setup I want. Not sure when I'll start looking for one, but when I do I'll take you up on that offer.
