RR lift nice but didn't level

I just got my RR lift on and am impressed. I went with 0 offset 17x8's and 265/70/17 nitto terra grapplers. A little rub, not much. So little I am debating whether to even pound down the pinch welds...

Anyways. I was posting to say I love the lift but it certainly did NOT level the commander. I still have a rake and although it looks better all around and has LESS of a rake I still expected more up front. Anyone else feel the same way?

Anyways, my son and I going out to play in the mud while my wife is at her baby shower... Pics to come this afternoon.

No, it never happened, I swear.

Rake is still there as you can see just not as bad. 1 inch lower in front than the back measured at the bottom ot the plastic 'rock rail' so to speak.

Looks nicer with a coat of mud on it by the way... I don't know why I don't do this more often.

It took mine about twoo weeks to fully settle and it does have a slight rake, i measure 36 1/4 at the center of the front flare, 36 3/4 center of the rear flare. That tire wheel combo looks sweet.

I guess we'll see how mine settles. Thanks for the rim comments. It wasn't that hard to pick out these considering there are only like 5 rims with the specs I was looking for.
