..until then though - got my summer setup on (only M-Tech bumper missing to complete the setup - will put it on once ride height is set).





The ride at this height is unbearable - scraping on almost flat surface
Will raise about 1cm (~0,4 inches) in the front - that should do it.

The rear is static in this pic, front is on air. The rears will be on air here shortly and will lay out much nicer.

Agreed. I might look into the plate delete. I kind of like the look for some reason so we will see.

Here is the next project to finish after the rears:
