Just like it would have come from the factory if the bean counters would let them make the bumper that high
RPG and BBLV like this.

Looks great! I was under the impression mid perch-esque raise would be a little less than 1.5. Does the truck seem completely level, or still retain any rake?

I am definitely not an expert, but it seems like we are adding more preload to the spring to raise the truck. Are we doing this modification for appearance purposes, or are there other benefits? What are the pros and cons of this change with respect to ride quality?
