Not necessarily. I've had a 3 inch BB for about 50000 miles. And I keep up with my dads zj with a 6 inch lift

Actually, it can be the headlight switch also. Solder joints go bad over time.

Being on a sporty import forum for awhile, it makes me laugh when people call my Jeep a "huge SUV". My wheelbase is shorter than the 4-seater 300ZX's and less than 8 inches longer than my 240's. Track ain't all that wide, either.

Grand Cherokees are deceptively small.

Older ones at least. WKs and WK2s are a lot bigger. But yeah, my ZJ is barely any bigger than a KK Liberty, and the KK has a taller roofline.

Saw a patriot parked next to a stock zj... They were the same damn size!! It's not the grand being deceptively small, vehicles have gotten deceptively big!
