    Hi everyone, I just got a 2014 raptor a couple months ago. I have a question about if my truck is on the mid perch already. Whats the best way to tell? Also here is a picture of the bottom of the shock.

    If you see a small groove under the perch it is at mid perch

    It will be an obvious groove - tried to find a photo on the forum showing the grooves in the shock body. Do a search and you'll find them.

    Looking at your shock photo, you're on bottom perch, as it comes from the factory.


    Here's a vid from RPG which shows exactly what to look for, at about 7:08:

    Agreed, from your photo you are on bottom perch

    Did you get the perch adjusted? I’m in DFW and looking for someone to raise mine to mid, but everyone I talk to has no idea what I’m talking about, and when I show them the “how to” forum post I always get a “we don’t do that,” or “nope.” I certainly can’t do it myself, I don’t have the tools :(

    Below is TMX contact info.
    BTW.. where did your truck come from? Seems like alot of rust/corrosion for a TX truck. Unless it spent some time at the coast in the salt water.
