from what I've read there is about a 1.5" difference, I don't have my Bronco yet so maybe that's not true, but I watched a few leveling videos. I think its why you can't get 37" on a Sasquatch unless you do it.
If you do it all the way around it’s just a small lift. If you raise one axel higher than the other to level it out is Mets a leveling kit. Is this just for the front axel?

OK, I’ll bite. How on earth is this considered a leveling kit if the normal bronco doesn’t have a rake. Leveling kits are for pick up trucks that come from the factory with a rake where the backend is higher than the front end. Hence “leveling”.
It does have rake. The truck sits 1 inch lower in the front

I think the minimum required for 37s is a leveling on the front. Its probably "best" to do a 2" on the front and 1" on the back, but I don't think its required, just recommended.

Jake is correct. Every Bronco that rolls off the production line has rake, including the Base. The factory rake is noticeable, but also appropriate, to allow for payload in the cargo bay when loaded, because the Bronco’s suspension is tuned soft for off-road performance.

Really good looking Bronco! I follow your channel at youtube (horsing' around) and I was wondering when you gonna get new set of wheels! Turns out you got two of them or half of two.

Dustin is a really DYI dude. I recommend his channel. I'm sure he has on his mind really cool ideas for his Bronco!

I believe that almost all cars/suv/trucks have a rake. It is mostly for aerodynamic purposes. Bronco is one of them.

Measured at the frame, my 4-door BL (non-SAS) is just over 1” higher in rear vs the front. Definitely some rake but not extreme. I may just add 1/2” to front.
