Driving it through water won't help. A pressure washer and an afternoon with nothing else to do will help though.

There's a truck around here with a 4' 3" lift. 4' in the suspension, 3" body lift. If you go faster than 3 mph around a turn, it's really sketchy and feels like it's rolling over. It's also RWD.

It was actually for sale on my local CL. I don't have pics of it though, I don't think... I know someone who probably does have pics, though... I'll have to ask him next time I see him.

Talking about large trucks, I saw a JK today that had 6 inch suspension, 2.5 inch spacers, 3 inch body, and 40s. Still had the D30 and D44 too smh

That's what the plan is on the wrangler is to do a big lift 4.5 suspension 1.25 body lift and maybe 35s about 8 1/2 inches.

Yea that is what is was reading that is why I decided to go with a 1.25 inch instead of a 2 inch. The main reason why I am doing a body is to get 1 extra inch and to replace all the body bolts and fix all the body mounts. I am doing a body off restoration.

Saw a Nomad 4X4 with a mild lift today. I actually like it. Probably be a lot of fun in the woods.

Wound up my front torsion bars to match the rear. And fitted 26" maxxis trepador tires. It's only 2wd but there are plans for locking the rear axle. Also attempting for a 3800v6 conversion towards the end of the year.
