Yeah it looks very similar in height to yours. I think it'll be alright, I still might ditch the BL cause I'd like to be able to park it in the garage.

In my honest opinion, you need to drop it down to about the height it was. If you are planning on wheeling any, you want to keep your center of gravity low. If you need to, do like people have suggested and lift the rear some and then loose the body lift. Right now it is just too high...

Yes I know about a low center of gravity. Ditching the BL is probably what I'll do, That will put it 2.5" over what it was with the RCD, I'm just not looking forward to the work haha. I guess I'll be ordering some more shackles soon......

The garage door is 7' but it still hangs down a bit when its opened. If it didn't hang down any I'd still have like 4"

can you adjust your door, I had to adjust mine when I first moved in to suck it up high enough. Mine has little tabs that let you move it up or down on how far it goes.
