it's not 5" higher than stock, the way you get lift from tires is take the original factory tire size which is 28" and find the difference between that and the new tires size. 235/65/17 = 29.1"

29.1 - 28.0 = 1.1" / 2 = .55" you would have gained .55" of lift from just the tires.

2.125 + .55 = 2.67" of lift vs the factory height.

AT/3's are great, they have worked in everything I've gone through snow mud ice & sand,if you are doing a lot of sand driving make sure you air down a bit as that helps a lot.
