I have never seen anyone reverse the rake like that.
You've never seen the Carolina Squat? If you haven't, then you should consider yourself lucky.

Glancing through the thread it seems like a 1.5" or 2" up front is good, not sure about the blocks in back? Thanks.
If you're worried about clearance, 33s don't rub even at stock height.

Just to weigh in on this conversation, I used to have a 2.5/3 level on my truck.. It now has a 6" RCX lift and I added Bilsteins in the front set at 1.5". It's a slight rake, or bulldogged, or Cali lean or whatever you want to call it. I was gonna lift the rear to level it out, but since I put the Bilsteins, I have had more comments on the stance, and everybody says leave it like it is. Granted, it's not a huge difference in the front and rear, but it's there, and everybody seems to like it... I'll leave the suspension the way it is, but I will be putting a 3" BL on it as soon as I get home from Africa...... As well as the new 22x14's

Around $2150 but I got my UCAs on sale for $599 and my coilovers for $1200 so that saved me some money.
