I'm sorry, but I have to ask. Why the lifts for so many here? Just for looks? Raising the body off the drivetrain doesn't improve ground clearance, and with the raised COG, I would think the handling would be worse.
Guess I'm just pushing old fart status these days, but I'm happy with my 2014 EL LTD, happy with the stock look, and happy with the stock handling.

That said, I did plenty to my Harleys over the years, mostly as a young fart. My '76 Shovelhead has had a few changes and still love to ride it. My '03 Road King Classic is stock, other than a few performance mod's.

Each to their own and lift away...

I love how these look lifted a bit and don't like the rake on them. But I'm afraid to loose stability as much of my driving's long distances on Interstates.

These are suspension lifts, the 3/2 kits are puck spacers. Not body lifts. Not the best for geometry, but even without tire size changes, they do increase ground clearance. They are 4 wheel independent.

Factor in larger tires and you gain even more.

For me it is ...

#1 to level it.

#2 lift allows for larger diameter tires which do increase ground clearance.

Just my 2¢

the tires I just put on mine are taller than the top of the wheel well was before new tires+lift. Definitely a big increase in clearance. First step out of the truck is a doozy, now.
