Full bump belly height


Building a new truck from the ground up. Curious what belly height you guys are getting at full bump. I was thinking somewhere around 6 to 10"
If it helps I'm doing A arm and trailing arms.
Chevy v8
And 37-40 inch tires.
At 10" with a 37 13.5 17 the rim and belly will be level at full bump

Probably have to add some more information on what you are building and "racing.". It is not unusual to only have 3-4" ground clearance on 40" tires...and pretty much zero with the tire flattened out. Skids at a shallow angle are important. Yes, it hurts.

I’m sure someone smarter then me can chime in but from what I have seen from most TT looks around 2”-4” at full bump.

I've always stuck a 4x4 under skid plate when building bump stops/shock mounts FWIW
