Level

Sits about level. Bilstein set at stock height w/ eibach 620lb coils up front, new Dakar leaf packs (2.25" lift) with 5125's in rear. Had the slightest bit of bro lean after install but has settled to just about level. 33" tires comming soon!!!

After measuring from ground to edge of fender flare its 38.5" in the front, and 38.25" in the rear. I guess it has the slightest bro lean. I don't mind, I like the way it sits!

Well I haven't lifted (yet), but I definitely plan to keep the rake... I use my truck as a truck. Don't want a bro-lean when hauling.

Thanks. So there is 1 1/2in more distance in rear when measuring center hub to fender lip (or ground to fender flare lip)? In other words, to be level, the two distances would be the same, but with rake, this is a good reference point to keep the rear 1 1/2in higher?

I didn't vote, because my truck came with a slight lift in the front and rear, more so in the front. Looks about level to me most of the time, but then sometimes looks to have an ever so slight negative rake, but I've not measured.

I PREFER more of a positive rake though and may end up doing some Dakars in the rear to give myself a little more support. I'm not going to do a whole lift because I already paid a premium for the Baja's higher grade TRD shocks.

I have gone through the whole range in the two months I have had my truck.
Purchased vehicle 2.5 inch rake.
Wanted to level/lift got 5100 all around set front at 1.75 align vehicle. No rake
To low
Purchased toytec coilovers, Dakar leaf pack, removed third leaf, align vehicle, Bro lean.
Purchased new wheels and larger tires, back to low now with larger tires
Re install third leaf in dakars, wanted 1 more inch but with the shims and the squeak fix it went up 2 inches. Align vehicle, back to 2 inch rake.

I like it flat, but it's a truck, and I like being high.

Fing alignment shops are getting rich of me.

Sounds like you could benefit/ save by getting the lifetime alignment. That's what I got and I've had it back in to get aligned atleast 4 times now. Best $100 bucks I ever spent.

Raked now with 5100's all around set to highest, and Alcan rear springs. For some reason my Alcans lifted my rear close to 4-5"! Pulled 2 leafs and it rides butter smooth now and sits about 2.5 inches raked with the saggy stock coils set to max. Replacing with Eibachs soon so we'll see how everything measures up after.

I like level, maybe 1" or less raked. I haul a dirt bike or two, mountain bikes and furniture when I move a friend. Thinking of a camper but I still have spare leaves from the Alcan I can throw back in if it settles more or need more capacity.

Not sure how it's going to sit after the lift but i prefer a factory rake than level. I have used my truck as a truck than I thought I have and hate sagging while having a load in the bed.
