Re: The real story on ground clearance?
From what I've seen, everyone is pretty much different on here depending on how they are geared. Your best best would probably be to start with a stock Ranger of your choice and go from there. Ie. FX Level II, or whatever.
I THINK, heavy stress on THINK, the standard is something on the order of 8.5". Anything above that is gravy.
