This^^^ plus an aftermarket bumper is another 60-70lbs so between that and the tire 80-90lbs it will lower the rear slightly.

I actually have the spare on now (first one was shipped damaged so it was off for awhile). What do you guys think about spacers? Bad idea?

Hmmm everything indexed properly in front? I can't remember if there is a spring isolator up front on top.. Did you leave that in?

Mines level, so this is weird....

what are your measurements from ground to fender front and rear? measure at the center of the wheel.

this is unusual....i haven't heard of anyone getting a rake from this.

I'll get some measurements that we can chat about. Priority right now is getting my harken hoist setup.

Start taking bets now on me just being completely delusional. It's entirely possible that I'm seeing a problem that isn't there.

anyone with a model before 2011 have issues with the front brake line brackets? I didn't put mine on because it seemed like i was going to brake the hard line bending it but now i wonder if i will be able to get full articulation without snapping the line. I am heading to Rausch Creek next week and don't know if i can pull the sway bar links without this happening, I am running 32's if that helps at all.

Is it just me or did the price on this lift go up 60$? Were there any changes to it? Getting ready to lift soon, either with this lift or a RK kit.
