Maybe because not everyone wants to run a 4inch lift and 35's?

But that's what all the sheep on this forum do.

6" long arm lift and 2" poly spacers. Simply becasue I like to have lots of room for the tires and not have to worry about them rubbing anything. And for a little extra clearance of running over logs and stumps of the pacific northwest trails.

Never had a problem with mine and it's been that way for three years now, but to each his own.

i agree, and for you being in super deep snow half of the year, it may very well be necessary over a LCOG design.

Jesus... you're riding 5 inches higher than I am, with the same size tire.






AEV highline body kit
35" Cooper STT's
15 x 8 rims

4" lift kit, but it's 7 years old and I've got big heavy steel bumpers at each end now so I'm calling it 3" at most.

Little bit of trimming was done on the rear wheel arch and now I can jump the thing without any tire rub on the landing
