Maybe my eye isn’t used to it but I kinda don’t like the front height aesthetic. If it provides functional benefit I would do it

Nice!!!!

nice!!!!
What size lightbar were you able to fit in the middle?
Not my truck. I wouldn't be so lucky :)

All 3 looks the same size so I imagine one of the forum guys with a truck can roughly measure middle of R to middle of M for us and get us an idea of lightbar length.

I texted him to find out what he used to level. Pics can be deceiving on a level truck, the only way to know for sure is measuring fender height before and after.

I’m going to guess that 1.5” is going to end up being the sweet spot for this truck. A smidgen of rake is actually a good thing both for stance, drivability, and to account for loading the rear to schlep stuff.

Let us know what info you uncover. I was hoping you saw this. You are right. I think most leveled trucks look level from the front and front-side but from the rear-side can look a little nose up. 1.5" would be great. Just guessing but these pics look maybe 2.5"

Higher in the front than rear, ish. Also 22's on a TRX? Hey to each their own, the owner is the only one that has to be happy with it. Plus it will make me look that much better on the road!

So hard to tell on the leveling but the extreme positive rake angle is gone which looks great. It might be a touch high but so hard to tell.

I love the powder coated calipers and the 22s. I just can’t leave those tiny Baja wheels on for more than a few days after delivery IF that day ever happens.

Excellent work on the light bars too. That’s one badass truck.

I've been texting back and forth with the current owner and he's a really nice guy.

He had the leveling kit custom made in a shop in Mass.

I've encouraged him to join the forum and he says he will, and then he can tell us all about his mods.

Any chance he gave the shop name. I am in MA so that's awesome. I will be go their straight from the dealer. That is great. I was hoping he was on the forum or able to join. Looks like he will pave the way from a lot of people to do those mods.

Thank you very much. Its like 20 mins from the dealer I bought from so perfect. Day 1, getting power steps installed and then head over there for a 1.5" leveling kit. Now I just need a truck haha.

The leveling kit was definitely a pain in the neck with trial and error but the end result is so worth it
