I was looking at the AMP PowerStep product and even though it seems to have the lowest drop available (outside of a custom-manufactured product), it still only drops about 2-inches lower than my OEM step bars. Yes, I can go with the extensions, which will give me an additional 3-inches, but then the step bar would be visible and I'm trying to go for the "hidden" look. Does anyone know of any other powered-retractable product out there that would drop lower (short of telling the wife to bring her stepladder with her )? Thanx again.

That's exactly what I did - went with the blocks for now. I figure later on I can upgrade the rear springs.

After having this lift on for some time now, I'm still loving it and will never return it to it's former OEM height.

On another note, I've noticed that with extremely sharp turning, I was getting some light rubbing as seen here...

So, I decided to throw on a set of Bora 2" hub-centric & wheel-centric spacers to resolve the problem...which it did. However, now I have rubbing on the rear of the front fenders here...

Just can't seem to win here. I'm thinking about either switching to a 1" set of spacers or somehow bending the rear of the fender well a bit to accommodate the new turn radius.

Suggestions?

Thanx.
