Scott, on the amount of body lift. On my 5, there is approximately 0.500" between the bottom of the tub, and the rear crossmember. I would say any measurement over that, plus or minus a little bit (because of the glass tub), is about the body lift.
When Clays grill is on, you can compare it to your 7.
BTW, the chips I bought for you guys, well I couldn't help myself, there gone.
On a slight hijack, bought another 7 Saturday. MRS. Lucdog was not very excited, to say the least.
It a 78, 304, 66,704 miles. It still has the factory owners manual, and the Jeep AM push button radio.
Have a great week, my friend. Bill
