Look for thread titled: report of ride height

It may not be factory spec, but the first list of numbers were taken before I changed my springs

I would think each truck would be different based on what is actually in the truck, how much fuel, brand of tires, how much you weigh (are you a buck fifty or a fat kid like me?) age of springs, etc, etc.

To some degree, sure. Was just hoping to see a baseline of a stock truck, stock tire size, no load (other than fuel). Variances in tires (of stock size) are slight enough, and are taken out of the equation it the the wheel center to wheel eybrow lip measurement anyway..

Picture taken from a Land Rover sales brochure, Notice that vehicle hight will depend on tyre suspension options. So what's stock?

Also says axle clearance 250mm
Minimum underbody ground clearance
, unladen 90-323mm, 110-314mm, 130-314mm

Just go with what fits I think

Then factor in lean and spring settlement....

Thanks for the replies gang, I appreciate everyone's efforts. In the end, I'll just have to wait till someone that has a stock NAS90, on stock size tires comes along and is willing to take some measurements..

Here's what I've pulled off an all original, down to the tires, '95 that's here:

20-7/8" to the bottom of the front fender
20-3/8" to the bottom of the rear fender
16" exact to the bottom of the fuel tank brackets (crossmember is missing so I couldn't use that)
19-3/4" to the bottom edge of either front frame horn.

Hopefully that gets you close. The truck does have a few things in the back but I can't imagine the rear is sagging much if any.

That's Awesome, thanks for taking the time to do that Ash. Any chance you can grab the wheel center to either eyebrow lip or fender lip measurements front and back as well?

19 1/4" from the rear wheel center to the lip of the arch
*couldn't measure to rear cross member due to skid plate

The truck is on factory spec BF Goodrich All Terrain's
