His was on 33s, so they had the wheel wells filled pretty well. He lifted it about 3 years ago (50k miles since), so he said it's sagged down to about 4" or a little more. Keep in mind, it was harder to judge height with it flexed.
He's got an Aussie because it's the only choice for a D44a. No selectables available, unfortunately.
If you need help transporting the 242, let me know. I brought mine home in the back of the 5.9. Lifting it out of there alone was a pain though. Storage could be an issue, but I'm sure your roommate will survive you keeping it in a corner of the dorm room for a few weeks.
BTW, check your RIT email. Offroad club meeting was moved to tomorrow.
