I was hoping for something in the 1.5" range for front level. This can be hard to achieve as the spacer has to cover the top mounting bolts which are quite log on a Bronco. Spacers tend to have about a 2:1 thickness to lift ratio on A arm type suspensions, ie 1" spacer gives 2" lift. Maybe something could be done at the lower mount, and take care of the hangy downy bolts while they're at it.

Trying to figure how the front is adjustable by a half inch. Any ideas?
in the kit is an additional spacer so you can tailor your lift requirements.

Are you guys going to offer any solution to the upper a arm (lower ball joint) to use pucks only instead of replacing everything as a more expensive full kit?

Yes the kit is maximized to cover the front studs for the lowest lift. it also comes with a spacer to dial in the ride height for the final appearance. Im not sure 1.5' vs 2'' would be a deal breaker in the final look of the vehicle. after all, we are talking abut the thickness of an oreo cookie. Who doesn't like cookies?

I want the soft top minimalist rack they designed. It looks perfect for what i'm trying to do without the gargantuan external racks that wranglers have available.
Can you link me? I havent seen this but want one badly.

There's no product page yet, but it's talked about in this video:
It's also shown in the pictures at the start of this thread. I'm surprised there's been so little info about it, it's a truly unique product vs. the wide variety of suspension products and wheels that will inevitably exist.

Because it's still under development & testing as mentioned in the walk around video ;)

Thank you, it's just a mental block I have: no more than 2" with a spacer, listing says 2-2.5, but good to know it is customizable within that range. And nitpicking, but I prefer color to be more like an Oreo, blackish so it doesn't stand out. 1.5" front 1" rear would be ideal to me.

I'm curious if the winch platform fits on the factory modular bumper.

shocks or leveling kits is our current solution. Who knows what the future holds for the other brands.

Im pretty sure Krylon has a chocolate color with texture to make you salivate on sight.

With the exception of the non-Sasquatch Badlands, right? Or will it work with that setup?
its easiest to think of it as. black shocks=level lift, yellow shock = No level lift. I'm not an expert in what shock comes on what package.
