Alright, so here are the results. Can't tell that much difference, but it's about an inch taller in front, and one and a half to two inches taller in the rear. I need to make a customer trailer hitch that doesn't hang down so low, and a rear bumper skid bar that's right next to the body for max clearance.

I have installed a ton of Rough Country stuff. Cant complain too much for the price. Usually went together pretty well.

Back definitely looks taller. Front looks a just a little stouter.

I'm not complaining for the price, I'm complaining for the obviously incorrect engineering of a shock body too long to fit the intended application. What I would like is for them to make an N3 shock that matches the factory unit so I have a nice new shock that matches the rear.

My rock sliders came today, quite excited!

Well post image is screwing up, but I hit 240k in the hardbody today, woot woot! Just sent off an email to Rough Country, hopefully that will get some traction. I'd like them to send me the cooler N3 shocks for the fronts that actually fit, to match my new rears.

Finally replaced my original D21 half shafts today. 240,000 before leaking, not bad. The boots finally gave out and the LF was spitting grease. RF was just about to go in the same spot.
