Nice I'm getting ready to lift mine 7" nice.

Here’s mine. 2002 XLS. 3” Body Lift, 2” Spacer Lift, with 265/75/16’s on 16X8 -6 rims, for a total of 6-1/2” of lift.

Here she is parked next to a stock Explorer.

This is how she look a month after I got the truck. I already added the pinstripes & window visors.

How much of a lift difference is a 265/70/17 to a 235/85/17 tire

A 265/70/17 tire is about 31.6 inches in diameter.

A 235/85/17 tire is about 32.7 inches in diameter.

That’s about 0.55”, or a 1/2” of lift.

Thanks I figured it but was not sure I'm using 245/70/16 now and wanted to change them
