OME springs, rancho shocks, adjustable track bars.

Before

34 inches front measured floor to middle of fender through the tire center, 36 inches in rear.

After

37.25 inches front, 38.75 rear with .75 inch front spacer.

So the rake went from 2 to 1.5 inches. We'll see where it settles.

Only thing left is to line up the holes on the adjustable track bar and put the bolts in. I'll do that after a break.

It took 10 hours with some store runs, breaks, and cleaning and touching up paint underneath, taking up about 4 hours of that.

88 degrees today, 68% relative humidity, 97 degree heat index. Blech, but it's going to be hotter this week.

You said you picked that rack up from Amazon?
I did, it was a scratch and dent. Full length "maxxhaul" for receiver hitch. Got it for like 20 bucks (way cheaper than a bending die for square tubing that I'm gonna use once). Cut about nine inches out of the center, welded, and built up brackets.

i hope the kicker speakers sound great with the JVC units i just bought the cs 6.5 rears and 5.25 front to go with this jvc unit i just put in a month ago JVC KD-T900BTS ill be installing in a week or so after returning from the lake
I have the same kickers front and back along with and older JVC. They sound great!! I do have the speaker pods in the front and added Poly fill in the sound bar, tightens everything up. I also added a SW11 kenwood powered subwoofer, it rounded it nicely.

Oh....didn't know you cut it down. I liked the size, just right for my ATV trailer.
