Yes if ofset dont count as added width then tall tires shouldnt count as lift.So i would think that offset would count as added width.

I would think so, but in case, I'll probably find/build the setup a couple of posts up. kinda easy setup and I can get a few more inches of lift (esp. if I use regular riding mower front end and the snapper hardened spindles{IE. MTD front end uses 3"arms, snapper has 5"spindles}) just a thought tho. gotta find parts and get it rolling again first.(keep snapping sprocket welds on the chain drive) this thing is turning into a heck of a build..... wink

Additional offset is counted as width. The height is measured from the bottom of the lowest point on the front & back; and the width is measured from the outside of each tire in relation to each other.

how does this sound?

34 wide 8 high rear, 27 wide 8 high front.

that's the setup now, stock setup (for the most part) I'll probably try that idea a few posts up and widen the front end out about 3-9" and maybe try to get a new axle for the trans and widen it out to 40". (maybe)

I'd like to try to lift it up to about a foot clearance, but don't think I'll get there with my current setup. (chain drive issues)

may get about 1-2" out of the play in the t-axle mounts and sprockets.
