Once again, opinions are more important than everything, huh? Why is it important to be able to not only form opinions, but hold on tightly to ones that are designed to be insulting? (or at least ones designed to be STATED as insults?)

I'm trying to get people to stop insulting things that aren't their favorites, as usually that's done to justify HAVING those favorites. It isn't about the opinion, but 1) the assumptions those opinions are based on, and 2) the inuslting way they are usually stated.

If someone came on here and said he "hated" lifted trucks because they are stupid and slow, and lifting them made them work worse, would you simply say "gee, he has an opinion! Must be true, because it's his opinion."

I like lifted trucks AND lowered trucks. I don't see why it HAS to be one or the other, or see a valid reason for one or the other to be insulted.

BTW, if I wanted to go offroading, I'd use a Jeep or a Land Rover.


That reminds me of that new Jeep they are making...
Has anyone seen it?

Would it be better, in your opinion, to raise or lower it (or leave as is)?

It looks pretty nice, wish they would build it, then what about the Jeep Gladiator, it's more of a truck:

Depends on what the owner wanted to do with it. That vehicle is specific to offroading, so making it the best it can be in that regard makes sense. But if someone thought it might make a neat lowered sporting vehicle and they pulled it of, that would be cool, too. I've seen some pretty neat lowered hot rod and drag race jeeps before, as well as killer offroad versions.

The way I like to look at it is 4X4's should be raised and 2WD's should be lowered. You wouldn't want to take a 2WD wheeling while a lowerd 4X4 is just pointless.

And in this case, I think the best would be to either leave it alone, or raise it up. Check out the picture I post above...

looks like the wagoneer, redesigned.....


only dropped for show/race purposes. offroading, or work, should stand tall on excellent suspension systems...

all depends on what you're going to use the truck for....

for offroading, definitely a suspension + body lift...put it up at least a good 12"...

for work..at the very least, a 3" suspension lift.

for show...all depends if you want to slam it on the ground, or just give it an agressive show stance....

Thanks for the advice, dodgerforlife...

Could I have the best of both worlds with using it for work and off-roading?
That is, without looking like an idiot?

What's the scoop?

Remember, some places in America have limits on how hgih you can raise a truck.

In my old place the limit was a 4" BL and a 8" SL max. The bumpers have to be a certain height fro mthe ground too. Plkus you had to have fenders covering the entire tire (no protrusion).
