More tire clearance = more articulation/travel for the suspension... HTH
I'm not one to argue much, so I can't understand why you've highlighted something twice, that I've already explained. I addressed a statement that a body lift gives more ground clearance, which it does not, it just makes more room. I agreed with you that it will give you other benefits with other modifications, but a body lift alone does not give more articulation without modifying something else. My point was so that when someone installs a body lift (only) they aren't wondering why they haven't gained any ground clearance. You've added some good point as to where you can gain from a body lift, but we aren't really having the same conversation. You're acting as if I said it can never be achieved, which would be wrong, I only commented on what a body lift does, out of the box, without any further modifications.
So yes while your statements are true, so are mine, you're just talking about something different than I am.
No disrespect intended, if I'm coming across that way, but the OP seemed a little green and I wanted to point out what might have otherwise been the obvious to everyone else.
I've owned and modified 4x4s for all of the 29 years that I'm driving, but currently do not have a jeep, as my blank profile will indicate. Hopefully within the next few weeks, one of the deals Im working on will come through, and with all of the help, from questions you guys have answered, I will have a profile to fill out.
Thank you for the help there and I'm sure more to come. Again, no disrespect, so please don't be offended.
