They're pretty highbrow over there. From what I've seen, you can only post a picture thread on the home page if they allow it. And it's all like professional photo shoots and ****

I don't even own a jeep anymore

lol yeah that's a bit excessive. the only annoyance on the mkv forum was the constant 'needs moar low'. but you'll find the exact opposite here sometimes too. it's all relative.

The Audi community was pretty open to Jeeps and lifted trucks as long as they weren't purpose built mod bog trucks from Florida (idk why but know really understand those things except people that are from there)

I even see a few of them over here on this forum.

You were agreeing with me? I guess that was portrayed via text.

I know often times negative camber is used to improve grip while cornering. However, most of these cars have an overboard amount of camber, with a very small contact patch on the ground. I'd imagine they wouldn't corner worth a ****...

This was my autox toy/dd before I traded it for my YJ. It was on coilovers and had some negative camber front and rear but it also corner balanced with a track alignment when it cornered the suspension would cycle and flatten the camber out so the full contact pack was on the ground in corners I put about 29k on it and never had a issue wearing tires out. But it was not excessive with negative camber it also sat 2.5" off the ground

I always shoot for the biggest tire I can possibly use combined with the lowest cog I can get. High clearance + low cog = me not crying like a 3 year old on a sidehill It usually takes some work with a bfh and a plasma cutter on my fenders to make it happen.

I like it to a point.
I am a drift guy, I like the camber to help with getting side ways. I also like it in an autocross setting

See, that looks good though. Still useful but also a good toy to go smash around in.

It is just as lame as a stupid sized lifted truck.
