X23B Ground Clearance?

I'm finding some people complaining of low ground clearance on the X23B. Does anyone know what the clearance is on a 2014? I know they offer a 2" lift as an option, but the one I'm looking at doesn't have it. Does anyone know if it can be added later on?
Thank You

Call Dexter axle company and give them the serial number on you axle. They will tell you what axle riser kit you will need. I have a 2013 X17Z that I installed a axle riser kit on.

Apparently it can be done as there is a lift kit available. Here's a link where somebody put one on there hybrid and also went with 14" tires as well:

Yes the hybrids do have lower ground clearance, but in the 2 years I've had my X23B, I've not had any issues with it. Some do if your driveway has a dip and on an incline, etc.


OOPPPS!!! Curtis you beat me to it, it was your link I listed!! LOL!

We have a 2015 X23B and ordered it with the 2" lift, only trouble we have had is with our street, very steep off the main road. We scraped the metal supports below the bumper the first time home after the dealer re-installed our equalizer WD bars. I readjusted them and haven't had any issues since. It sits low but isn't an issue; backing in the driveway I have to go over the curb in the front of the house it it doesn't scrape on anything.
