    Installed 1.5" RPG collars today on my 2019 Raptor. I like the ride height but am a bit disappointed that the plastic tabs securing the wire for the live valve cannot be reinstalled. the RPG collar blocks access to the holes. Used a couple zipties to secure the wires so its not just dangling around.

    Just wanted to share my experience for anyone with a 2019 looking to install RPG collars.

    Interesting! I just had some 2.25" collars installed today on my 19. I'm going to have to look now and see what they did with my cable. I really dont notice a difference in the ride do you?

    What is the exact height front and rear now after the rpg? I’m still deciding what height I want mine. I know this question been beaten to death. I just don’t see too many 19s discussed yet. Thanks.

    Seems like more people want the 2.25". I am happy with the 1.5" more. I like the truck to have a very small rake to it.

    I have 1.75” rake from the factory on my 19. I dislike the look of ass dragging front high look, 2.25 would put me there. That’s why I was asking was your new measurement was. To see if the lift was fully 1.5”.

    Just installed my 1.5 inch collars today. Like someone stated earlier the only disappointment I have is know where to hook the wire for the live valve shocks. With new measurements I am now a quarter inch lower in the front than the rear just a very slight rake. I do also have a retrax bed cover adding a little weight to the rear.

    I asked/posted about this a while ago whether or not any of the collars would be made to retain the factory clips to hold the sensor wires and the response was negative. This is ultimately why I ended up going with the Eibach springs (I think they actually add 1.7" of lift and Eibach has updated their website to reflect this for the 2019). Running the Icon rear leaf springs with no add-a-leaf still has a bit of rake with the Eibachs up front.

    I would love to know if I could put a small amount of preload on the eibach spring and get about 2.7 inch lift oh, I just don't know if the preload will react the same to an aftermarket spring then it does with the OEM
