BigB, I did use the method you are taking about measuring the height of the rear. My buddy measures from center of the bottom the wheel to the fender. I am not sure which method is the correct and or universal, but I use the ground to the fender centered. What are your numbers with your set up? I would also like to know what Mike's are with the 4" and 315's!

Yes....so far, so good....I'm still extremely happy with it. Haven't had a chance to drive my truck much lately though (once in the last 3 weeks) but was able to go play in the snow the other day.
I was actually surprised at how much lift the kit really gave me. It ended lifting it 5" from hub to center of fender. And since it lifted the bottom of the axle as well (lift and larger tires), I think it ended up around 6" from ground to center of fender.
When I need new tires, I'll be looking at mud vs a/t. Besides looking tough, I can imagine them putting tread on the ground when I air them down for off-roading. Right now, the a/t's end up putting smooth rubber on the ground with the lower pressure, which scuffs them up pretty good.
