Unless you're looking at a BB, prom is going to last longer than a $300 lift.

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.

Then your dads 6" lift isn't set up right.

This. And I'm surprised you don't drop a coil with 3" pucks.

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.

Those tow hooks aren't there for me. They're there for the XJs.

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!
