    I never measure the ground clearance with the factory tires but i'm over 12" with my 28x10R12 BH 2.0's, they measure out to just over 27" on the bike. It's likely that your hard sided cab weights a fair bit and it most likely cost you some of that ground clearance.

    We discussed this years ago on the Gen 1 Wolverines, due to guys having issues with sagging springs not long after purchase. I measured my front height at the square framing right behind the front tires where the front a-arm is mounted. I measure the rear height at the square framing at rear of the machine where the rear a-arm mounts and the rear receiver hitch is located. Both places are easily accessible and the square edge make it easy to read changes. I would think the X2 and X4 are the same in these locations.

    That’s exactly where I measured mine, great minds think alike I guess.

    I put in the Highlifter 3.5” lift kit to enable the installation of tracks for winter play.

    Here are my measurements (factory tires, 100lb tool box in the bed, no passengers, factory suspension settings, full skid protection options):
    Front: 11 5/8”
    Rear: 11 7/8”

    As previously noted by the user blast, you don’t get the advertised 3.5” lift with this kit.

    Sorry, my bad memory, it was EastTexasWolverine who noted disappointment in clearance gain.

    Measured mine today and the front and back were both around 11-3/4” with the summer wheels and tires.
