I was wondering if anyone could tell me the height difference between the two? I have a 03 KC XE and would like to lift it and put larger tires. I really like the look the stock Desert Runners have. I know they use 265/70's on them but what about suspension? If I add a leaf and use the raised shackles will the extra 2.5" plus the tires put me at about the same height? I read through the FAQ's and several pages of threads but didn't see anything specific so excuse me if its already been asked.

Thanks Again

For what it's worth I have a stock 98 XE and run 265/70's on it. No lift, no rubbing, but I don't take it off road either. I have a Samurai for that.

I have a 01 kc xe and i put the calmini shackles, shocks made for 3in lift and 1000lb leaf helpers and on. The front i cranked the torsions and also put the calmini shocks on. i have 31x10.5x15, and when i parked next to a desert runner mine sits like an inch or two higher

The desert runners are just 4x2 Frontiers with 4x4 suspension.

Thats where the height difference comes from.

All the 4x4s are the same height (aside from difference in tire sizes).

You can fit 31" tires on stock suspension.
