Top of Windshield frame- 73.25
Top of front tire to bottom of fender flare- 4.75
Top of rear tire to bottom of fender flare- 6.75

It has 33x12.5 r15 ties on 15x8 wheels.

Re: How much Lift?

Stock should be about 20" from ground to rocker panel. Your tires will make that a little taller. You can get lift with body lifts, shackle lifts and spring lifts. You could have one of these or a combination of all three. It probably is just an add-a-leaf with the combination of tire size thats giving you the lift. Just my opinion but hope it helps.
