    H105 (bottom of rear bumper to ground)+H705 (rear bumper height w/tailgate closed)
    "20.41+10.47"

    Page 6
    H503 "cargo body height w/molding"
    20.9

    Add it all up and its 51.78 inches. Plus you need to account for the space between the top of the rear bumper to the bottom of the bed floor which I don't see a measurement for but its really small.

    Thanks for all the info guys! I want to go out into the parking lot with a ruler and measure different trucks, but my coworkers will think I'm crazy!
    52" sounds borderline reach-over-able. Having a deeper bed for capacity, a taller bed for aerodynamics and tall springs for higher payload capacity makes sense from a sales standpoint. But for my particular wants I may be that guy with the lowered truck.

    I went in my work parking lot with a tape measure and measured bed rail to ground at the center of the rear wheel. An old Ranger measured 45". A new Diesel GMC Canyon 4x2 measured 53" and a F-150 4x2 was about 54". Trucks have really changed.

    Looks like @j0shm1lls was within 1” or so. Close.
