As I posted earlier, the increased travel HAD to have come from a redesign eliminating mechanical bind - otherwise the bind would still exist - and bind was the limiting factor on Gen 1s. Just adding a uni upper gave an additional 1.5" of droop travel while still using the factory 2.5s.

I'd be curious to see the difference between LCA coilover mounting points on the factory cast arms to see what changed there as well.

I was speaking in terms of the G2 Raptor as compared to the standard F150 4x4..
Perhaps I misunderstood...
