Quadvan 2" and 4"-Real rise

Does anyone have a Quadvan conversion who could measure the height the two different lifts are off the ground? Maybe from ground to bottem of frame at drivers door. I realize tire size would fluctuate this. Thanks for any input. RD

19 3/4 inch at the front hinge of the front door from the floor to the bottom of the frame.

I have a 4" lift with good tread on BFG AT tires on a 2008 Ford.

Re: Quadvan 2" and 4"-Real rise

Hey RD,

Just call Quadvan with any questions. Ask for John, he is the engineer and he does the 4x4 conversions.
I was told that the lifts done by Quadvan are 4" or 6".
I have the 6" lift and it is great! Very plush suspension!
I measured 21" from the ground up the underside of the driver door.
Below the driver side door, there is a metal seam.
This is where the outside and inside van walls are welded together.
This is how I got the measurement.

Keep on doing your homework, it is totally worth it!

Peace,

Zugg

QuanVan does 2" lifts, but only recomends them for highway-only vehicles, such as delivery trucks and shuttle busses... ie snowy road use, not off-road use.

I thank you for the replies. I'm trying to decide how much lift I want to deal with ( as far as getting in and out). I need the 4X4 mainly to deal with snow and mud and turnarounds on narrow farm roads with ditches. RD

Do 4" at least for better wheel travel.

QuadVan has some retractable running boards if step in height is a concern.
