Clearance on rough off the beaten track type "roads". Like those in BLM areas, or national forests

I just camped next to an old 13' Boler that hat been lifted and also had the 15" tires. Towed by a jeep, the guy said he mostly visits remote spots served by logging roads.

Talk about raising center of gravity! Wish I'd taken a picture.

I ordered the high-lift axle to match the height of my new Toyota Tacoma ( for back country use ), that I hadn't bought yet. Did a test drive of the Taco and the Old Bag reminded me that we were getting older and more decrepit and probably wouldn't be able to climb up into it. So, I ended up with a RAV4 and a high-lift axle.

How much higher is the high-lift axle compared with the standard one?
