I like mine, you get a bit over an inch up front, a bit under an inch in back, depending on how your axle is tipped up and how much work you want to do:

I also find that the extra clearance (1" is like running a 2" taller tire) is only part of it, the sliding over stuff is probably the biggest benefit. I recall my first trip after shaving the front axle. I was so stoked at the end of the trail that I didn't think I hit anything up front all day, or so I thought. When I looked closely, I found all the paint scraped off the plate on the bottom of the housing. I had been hitting rocks all day long, but never got hung up on anything, just slid over.
