    Before:
    Left Rear at21 1/8" Hub to Fender and 35 1/8" from Ground to Fender
    Right Rearat 21 1/4" Hub to Fender and 35 3/8" from Ground to FenderAfter:

    Ground to the bottom of the hitch receiver is was 16 1/8"

    Ground to the top of the front skid plate was 18"

    The suspension has not settled yet but otherwise, what do you guys think of the numbers? Do they seem consistent with what you've seen from the ULK with 285/75 17 tires? How are my alignment numbers?

    Thanks guys. I was a bit worried as the measurements are a little all over the place but I guess that might be expected until it settles. I was worried about that left front being at 2.0, but, I suppose it will work until I need to have another one done. I don't think it would be worth the gas to drive down and have them redo it. My CV angles are awesome too! I have no idea why. The diff drop must have helped because they don't look near as steep as a lot of people's with the same lift. Unless their fronts were adjusted higher than the factory setting.

    Looks great! I'm also partial to magnetic gray though lol. I didn't get the sheet for when I got mine aligned with my LR UCA's. Perhaps I should have.
