I dunno. Mine measures the same and looks a lot bigger than a co worker's Tundra with a 3/1.

I have been thinking about how to get a little more out of it though. I'm seriously considering adding a 2" leveling spacer up front for 9" lift and maybe an add-a-leaf in the rear. I will be waiting until I need new tires in the spring if I do it though and go up to 37s. Should add 3" between lift and tires.

I've got a BDS lift with a 37" nitto trail grapplers which measure around 36" and i've got the same measurements. 44 1/2"
So your looking pretty good my friend. I too want to add an extra 1-1.5" to the front but i don't know what to add or upgrade to in order to get extra amount in the front

The BDS lift comes with a shim that makes up 1 1/2-1 3/4" of the lift. I'd say you could remove it and replace it with a 3" leveling spacer. For an overall gain o 1-1.5". I've put a lot of thought into how to squeeze a little extra lift out of it. Lol. My only worry is getting an alignment. I don't want to have to buy aftermarket UCAs.

Dang 9-11 MPG ?!?!?!?!? I have 37's and am getting between 14-15 MPG granted i just switched to 4.88 gears which helped but 9-11 is bad do you have a heavy foot? and do you have a hypertech speedo calibrater. because i get 14 mpg while going 70mph. I know hypertech is trying to work the speedo issure for 2012 and up trucks not sure if they fixed it yet. but that might be why your MPGs are low sense the truck doesnt know when to shift properly which could be the reason for such low mileage.

with the bds kit only way to add a coil over(acording to local shop and other forms) is to go with the icon uca's and run the icon 7 inch coilover thats made for bds. you cant keep the stock ucas because it wont allign straight after doing so.

also bds with a 3 inch body looks insane and will fit 38s
