Just curious, what is the clearance from top of tire to fender well under loaded conditions (hard to tell from the pic)? I believe Dexter recommends a 3 inch clearance to allow for suspension travel.

I just went to the dexter web site this morning and there is a lift kit available for the torflex axle. It is #10 torflex lift kit part no. k71-707-02 for about $300.00. The information says that it will raise the frame 2 5/8" and is for a side mount only. I still don't have a hybrid yet so I don't know if the axles are top mount or side mount. My pup looks to be a side mount.

don't know this one from experience, as i haven't installed 14s yet, maybe BrockEverly can provide... but, my measurements find there is plenty of top and side area room for the 14" setup.

Bob tx for the "Dexter kit "info, even my dealer , who is awsome , did'nt know about iT. We did about the same thing except we used 2" sq tube. A good thing to remember when you raise the tt you have to provide an additional step at the doorway or fall down go boom after ****tail hour. Larry

Just a weird fact, for some reason, even though most of the hybrids have 13" wheels, our 2011 X17Z came from the factory with 14's. Not sure why?? They seem to be fine.
