Dirt and Snow Coilover - Unplugged Performance

I'm looking at the Dirt and Snow Coilover to raise my model Y by a couple of inches. I don't know much about coilovers. My question regards ride comfort - will it also improve the comfort of the Model Y - especially over rough city streets. I'm comparing this to the Unplugged Performance Luxury Coilovers and I'm hoping that it will be close to the improvement that you get with those coilovers (or at least better than the stock model y configuration.
 
Now waiting for install day.

Thursday again??
Still in the trunk. 2nd law of thermodynamics and other more meaningful things to do keep getting in the way. We finished building our kids’ school play yard! Farm work! Work work! Health worker in family on perma-call! Etc The box is darn heavy so I have an incentive to get it done just to not be loading and unloading it like a fool. Stuff looks primo tho, noice.

Hi to anyone who may be interested- I just got the Unplugged Performance Dirt and Snow Offroad Coilovers installed.
I have learned so much from this forum over the last ~10 years, and I tend to do so little on my cars that this a good opportunity for me to contribute back. So, I plan to do a full review, and to do so it would help me to collect your questions: If you don't mind posting specific questions, ideas of pictures you want to see, etc it would help me a lot do a comprehensive writeup with pics. I predict people will ask about how easy it is to access the hard/soft dials, how to set height, etc. So AMA and I'll be happy to try to provide the answers I can.

How high can they reasonably go.. efficiency differences.. thanks so much!
 
How much was the install?
What's the most (and least?) lift you can get?
Is the ride any better? What about on a dirt road?
Do you plan on changing the lift regularly? Sounds like that would be a pain.
Any worries about what happens when the shocks eventually go out? UPP isn't using a name brand shock are they so replacement may be difficult? (no real idea here, just wondering)
Worth it over the MPP lift?

Looks great- Off-topic question, is someone on the way to replace the roof rack bars with one that are flat/straight? I carry a lot of ad hoc stuff but putting a whole rack makes the view from the interior looks like a cage.


I have had zero time to write a review . In the meantime, some pics.
