So now you've swapped your percentages. If bump-stops are limiting clearance to less than </=2", you definitely need attention there.

Our trucks look great low. Problem is, once you go so far the ride quality is impacted unless other things (like your bump-stop dilemma) are corrected. It takes a lot of work to sort through everything sometimes. Many won't put forth the effort/investment & just 'live w/it'.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....
