Would you complain if you asked for 3 cheeseburgers and received 4. Or a six pack and got a twelver. Some people are never happy.

Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind

Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it

Often times the lift seems more. The stock suspension may have sagged some, the new suspension needs to settle a little.

I would not delete the other inch.

He had a 2013 JK, that extra inch means he'll quickly need to replace the front drive shaft.

If it means I need to buy two new driveshaft's when I specifically ordered this height to stay away from those issues, then of course, call me never happy.

most times with a new lift they start out higher and settle down about an inch as you drive it a little bit.

Does the extra inch cause an angle or length issue?

angle, the boots on the newer JK driveshaft's will get damaged when you articulate and then they will rip themselves apart. Especially the front, the boot will hit the exhaust cross over.
