I can't answer for others... but for me:If it’s a cute Ute without a 1” lift. It’s a cute Ute with a 1” lift. The good news is it’s a sports utility vehicle not a cute utility vehicle. A vehicle that can be utilized both on and off road.
There are negative effects to lifting. You are changing the structure and adding stress to critical components. My question is.. if ground clearance is more important than intended fuel economy and handling, why not get a base 4 door and sasquatch?
1) Sound isolation... Anything that has multiple panels that can be taken off will undoubtedly have more points of noise penetration.
2) Timing... Car died.. Need car soon.. Can't wait until 2022.
But to answer a non question... I'm looking for more lift not because I want to off-road. My answers are stoopid.. a) Stance Mannnnnn... and b) I just want to survive Houston Floods and every inch counts... TWSS
