softer ride I assume. with hardly any weight over the rear it will tend to buck more, with a softer ride it will float more. even if you had 30" of travel, it would have to be strapped shorter so your shaft doesnt come out. I have talked to a couple guys who have my yr model running deavers and stock shaft length. you can extend it but when fully stuffed it would be too long and damage the trans.
the front..well being 4wd theres only so much that you can do before limiting out something...
