Here it is two and a half inches lower than stock interceptor. Close, but full turn lock to lock with no rub. It probably would rub if you got in the right spot with the wheels cut.

maverickman514 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
true clearance will be determined by spring rate, shock settings (compression and rebound), amount of body roll and final tire size and wheel offset.

Don't get me wrong, I think it is awesome workmanship and I wish mine could ever look that good, I just wouldn't want you to assume that it will clear because it does sitting still in the shop. I would test drive it on the Mustang rims (not sure if they are to be final wheel) and really put the truck thru some hard corners.. if everything works good and no rubs, then you have a really solid baseline for any future plans.

Again, Your truck looks great, I am a bit envious.

Looks great. There has been a few sitting on the sidelines waiting for this day. So did you take it out to see how well it worked out on speed bumps and such. I got the 85 CV home last night ( drivetrain ) after an hour of shovelling and pushing. Then a 35min drive in -10C with no heat and the window open....priceless . I have a front subframe lined up off a 04 CV PI. So I'm now committed. Well keep the pics flowing especailly of a high speed slalom while jumping hills. LOL.
Great work !
