I drive a stock 2005 4Runner (4th gen I guess?) with Michelin A/T tires. Anyway, I was able to make it to 8800 ft I could have pushed further, but I was starting to scrape here and there. I‘ve got some basic skid plates, but unless you plan on some light damage to your truck (or you have better skidplates, etc), I wouldn‘t plan on getting much higher than that. I‘ve got 9" ground clearance at the lowest point, and some rocks on the trail (if you‘re not willing to move them) can be a good 12 inches tall. If you want to take it slow and move some obstacles, you can probably make it to about 10000 ft, and that will save you a good mile and a half of hiking.
