Your total amount of travel is still the same. But you will have more up travel and less down travel than at stock height.

I mean like since I gained 2.5 inches did I gain that in travel? Will my lower arm still hit the bump stop? Or did I keep stock travel and just gain hight

Short and quick answer (assuming all that's been done is 885s)..... You gained 2.5 inches in donward travel but your truck also sags 2.5 inches less (give and take). Your lower a arm will still hit the bump stop with enough force. The total movement of your shock from fully extended to fully compressed has not changed therefor you have gained no "overall" travel.

its "lose" not "loose".

you have lost 2.5" of down travel and moved it to the up travel. the numbers are still the same. Also typing the word "like" does'nt help anything
