2019 Rebel with a 2.5" Motofab spacer up front and ReadyLift upper control arms. Wheels are 18x9 -12 Fuel Shok D666. Tires are Cooper AT3 XLTs in a 295/70-18 (34.25" tall). The rear is 1/2" lower than the front as it sits.....probably because the roof top tent and rack are weighing it down just a bit. I'll be installing air bags in the rear and could easily raise it to level the truck, but there's something I don't like about a tall leveling kit on an IFS truck. The arms droop down and narrow the track width. It's noticeable and I don't like that very much. I could either replace the spacers for a 2" version or widen the front track a bit with some 1" or 1.5" spacers. :confused: Not sure what I'll do yet, if anything. Oh, no rubbing thus far.

@Jmaloneydo Can you still utilize all 5 suspension settings after raising the front 1" and dropping rear by 1/2"?
To be completely honest with you I haven't tried to go up to OR2 but I have tried all other settings and they all still work fine. I get zero rubbing in the normal mode with the links on, which is now an inch taller, but I do get some rubbing when backing up with the wheel cranked to one side or the other in Aero mode, but that's it. Not bad at all and the stance and look of the truck is WAY better than stock in my opinion. Go for it!

Ya 2wd is the only way to run spindles
Im not sure if thats completely accurate because their new 6.5" lift for the 4wd uses the same spindles. I messaged the to see if they are3 going to offer a 4" kit for the 4wd. Waiting on a response.

Thought I saw a 4" lift for 4x4s with spindles on their site. I'd be concerned about the axle angles, though.

It's not the same spindles. The 2wd spindles are solid and do not have a hole where the wheel hub connects to, there is just a recess. The 4wd spindles have a whole that the hub connects to and this is where the cv shafts go through. The 4wd spindles don't really give any lift themselves, that is achieved by the strut spacer. What the spindles do on a 4wd truck is correct the control arm angles, steering angles, etc to keep the suspension geometry the same as a non lifted truck and keep as close to the factory ride as possible. The spindles are just taller. Without the new spindles on a 4wd, the top control arm would be heavily slanted down while the lower control arm would be heavily slanted up, resulting in a poor ride.

Maybe I should have clarified

My fault I should should have clarified. Every truck has a spindle/knuckle. The lift knuckles the hat move the knuckle down but keeping the factory bolt location will not fit with the cv’s on the 4wd. The spindles on the 6 in are not lift spindles but just fabricated ones that are stronger.

Looks great!!...Do you have a pic from the front that shows your wheel offset?
I do not but I can tell you they stick out about 2 inches more in the back and about 3-4 in the front with the spindles
