Guessing and estimating is a good way to get an inaccurate measurement sir.

Well.. measuring will be different for trucks... cause we all have different sized tires.. Overall, a 4" lift is gonna raise your truck 4". Are you trying to verify that it will fit in your garage or something like that ?

I did the same searching on a 6” BDS. Consensus was that the new cab height on a 4WD with 35” tires is approximately 6’11”.

But there are a lot of factors that will make this not an exact science. For instance, you can choose between a 4” or 5” block in the rear. That changes your rake and ultimate height depending where you measure.

Also, if you have the satellite XM antenna nub on your cab that will increase height / reduce clearance.

Finally spacers vs coilovers up front can change things. A 6” coilover, depending who makes it, can actually be slightly less or more than 6”, adjustable, and even settle down (“shrink”) after you’ve put some miles on them.

I’ve got a 7’ garage I want to clear but ultimately decided somebody else’s measurement isn’t going to reliably answer the question for me.
