    i have the 3" lift from Fat Bobs...

    i have since put a truck cap over the bed for the dogs on travel...and it seemed to have lowered the rear about an inch...doesnt seem like much, but it is very noticable....

    im sure the shocks that come with the fat bobs are probably low end...would upgrading my shocks give me my inch back, or is there something else i can do?

    thanks..

    Shocks won't help with lift. U need an Add-a-leaf or Blocks. I recommend a bigger AAL.

    They usually come as a pair. Try Wheeler's Off Road or Toytec.

    Did your kit already come with an AAL? If so, what size. Both companies sell a 1.5" and 2" version.
