    I lifted the truck 1 3/4" front and 1.5" in the read, making that rake a little less.

    So now my wife (4'10") can't see very well over the hood to drive the truck.

    I'm in hot water guys! :crapstorm:


    Has anyone found a power seat rail that gos up?

    I suggested a booster cushion and it didn't go well.

    Trade her in for a newer (and taller) model. It's the only way.

    how has lifting the truck changed how much she can or cant see over the hood? you got some serious bro-lean going on?

    It's not like you lifted the truck and left the seat where it was

    Wait a fucking second. Is she asian? My wife is Chinese and had a similar problem (and my truck actually have a bit of bro lean) :anonymous:

    It found a rather elegant solution. I just told her to take off the fucking visor when she drives and now she can see fine.

    I second that...It's always a good time for an upgrade. Unless she's asian and then she's a keeper. :D

    How about moving the tail gate camera to the grille? This would give you a legit reason for a stereo upgrade to a large screen with DVD and navigation

    So... which is it? If you only lost 1/4" of rake I'd say it's all in your wife's head...

    Buy a pillow and be done with it. If she can't drive the truck, don't let her :D
