    I changed some lights, tires and tinted windows...mind blowing huh
    Any chance someone with a stock 5th gen trail premium could measure from the center of the front hub to the fender for me? Mine seems like it is sitting with too much rake towards the front. Not sure if it is actually something I need looked at or I'm just trying to convince myself to lift it already. My wallet and wife are disagreeing with the lift right now.

    I can tell from here your front end is too low. I recommend the lift.

    Haha, I know the feeling. Maybe this can help...

    ...When I can't fight GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) for any of my hobbies (music instruments, guns, motorcycles) and don't have extra cash, I look for things that I don't use anymore and sell them on craigslist/pawnshop to help fund my new 'NEED'.

    Just checked our '16 4R and it is 19" at the front and 21" at the rear. Frankly, I don't think that is enough difference to worry about. What is the consensus? - Ted

    It is your vehicle Ted, leave it if you are happy. All I did was add Bilstein 5100's to the front set at .85 which gave me 1" front lift. I just wanted a little less front rake and to stop the front end nose dive while braking. I am 100% happy with what I did, many around here would want more. It is my vehicle and I love it, that is what matters.
