6. The suspension boost allowed us to mount 2-inch-taller 285/75R16 (32.8X11.2R16) Yokohama Geolander M/T tires, which gave the truck its additional ground clearance. The clearance at the front skid after the lift and tire installation is now 14 inches, and the lowest point on the rear differential measured in at 12 inches. That's an increase of over 2 inches and a useable amount of ground clearance for a mild trail-runner. The truck not only looks great, but the Geolander's aggressive tread pattern offers superior traction over the all-terrain tires we removed. For such an aggressive tire we also found the Geolander's very highway friendly. We are told the tire's new rubber compound is longer lasting than the original M/T's, and they are available in sizes from 30 to 40 inches.
