Just got back from Mor Ryde -- Risers Installed

We just got back this afternoon, Saturday, from our trip to Mor Ryde. Had 3" Risers installed to give me some more room at the tailgate of my 2017 F450.
The Risers did the trick. Now have 6 1/2 inches (was 4) at the tailgate.

Trailer height is 13'5" at the Front AC unit and 13'4" at the Rear AC unit.

Anyone who has been there knows how great they treat you. This was a 2-day install and not only did we stay in our trailer, inside the building, but they also provided lunch both day.

There was a 44 Houston DRV next to us and he also had 3" Risers installed.

It is not a simple job. They take everything out (everything) put in the Risers and reinstall everything. The also put in new brake lines. Here is a picture with the Risers installed and one of the IS system axels back in.

Gotta love Mor Ryde..... Nice lunch right? And the T shirt too, don't forget the T shirt. LOL

Nice the way they re-route your brake lines huh?

GREAT people to deal with.

DRV Credit for Risers -- might be good customer service

You know with all of the new trucks having the higher bed height and the obvious increase with Mor Ryde doing 3" Risers it would be great if DRV would give each buyer who orders their unit an option for a CREDIT towards Risers being installed later -- instead of just getting the 2" Riser.

Just a thought. I will certainly bring it up to those DRV folks at the Rally in August.

JMHO but something worth thinking about.

Don

Nice, they are a first class operation.

I saw there new steps first hand on someone's rig at Rolling Retreats. They look very well made. I would probably have gotten them over my power steps.

It was a COMPLETE pleasure dealing with MORryde from scheduling to completion!!! Sad I can't say the same for DRV's factory warranty experience.

I like my "POWER" steps just fine!
