    Trying to find information on the various 579 heights. I'm in a mid roof which is obviously lower than the usual 13'6", but how much lower.

    Attempts to Google tractor specs are coming up short. Sure I could go actually measure it, but would be good to know official numbers.

    If you go to the 2017 heavy duty body builders manual it lists off cab and sleeper heights of various configurations from the bottom of the frame rail to the top of cab. They do not list off ground to top of cab as suspension or tire size will change this.

    Thanks, looks like I will have to physically measure it.
