    How low you need to be. I saw 34" by op. You cannot dump air bags?

    The lower, the better. I can dump air bags and I get another 2”1/2.

    34”-2”1/2 is working great for my setup. I get a clean pickup and drop off when I’m loaded.
    You must check what is working for your setup. And take 2-3” extra for soft/uneven terrain.
