I was thinking, the limiting factor with the Badlands, the one thing I’d really change, is how much clearance it has.

With mods, like tires and wheels, how much could you increase it?

For me this is a long term project I might consider because I simply don’t have the cash right now, that said, how much could the car and swing arms be lifted with mods, without compromising the off the factory floor integrity.

The Badlands (and FE) come with a sort-of lift from the factory and bigger tires (235/65r17), so 8.8in of ground clearance, which is good for the class, but not exceptional. 3rd party lifts on top of that go ~1 inch more, at least for the spacer lifts Ive seen. Then it can just barely fit 235/70 tires, which are an inch bigger diameter, so another half inch lift. With modifications to the fender wells and body, Ive seen 245/70 fit which gives another little bit. So 10.5in ground clearance are doable without too much work.
