oh. Mine sat like this for awhile. When I did put the shackle lift in (1" setting) I definitely noticed the difference in height.

That's pretty much how mine sits. lol.

I could do shackles, but once I do the 4x4 swap, the back end will be higher than the front again, so it's not really worth it.

Finally figured out a CB antenna mount that I'm happy with. It's an L-Bracket that bolts under the factory tie down.



Also, parts are starting to trickle in....

It's on the back of the center console. Not an ideal location, but it's the only place I was happy with.

I loved having it mounted to the side of my Explorer full length console. It was within reach, and IMO looked pretty awesome.

Same.

Nope, I still have 4" lift spindles in the front. When I do the 4x4 swap, I expect the front of the truck to sit lower than the rear again.
