Stock Front suspension travel

Ok guys, on a stock 05-07 F250/F350 4x4... What is the amount of "up" travel on the front? Currently with my 4" skyjacker I have 4" of up travel and am using 2" of it judging by the shock rods and where the clean/dirt start. I did some math here.. but on a stock truck we only have 2" of up travel?? that's what i'm using for "normal" right now... so on stock trucks... how does that work? You just hit the bump stops a lot? why do we have so little up travel stock? Has anyone thought about shaving 1/2"-1" off the bump stops? I've only taken my truck off-road with the 4" lift. 2" of up travel stock... sounds like you'll be hitting bumps stops hard/often when scooting on back country roads and whoops. what do you guys think?
