Perfect timing with this post.
I'm in the process of trying to decide if I would be better served to drop my junk back down and essentially undo most of the mods I've spent so much time and money doing over the years to make it more road friendly and frankly less of just a major PITA to drive around.
Or, if I'd be better off just selling it to someone who would use it for playing offroad properly like it's built for and then just getting myself a "grocery getter" variety and slapping some AT's on it and using it like that.
I just don't see myself doing any serious offroading in the foreseeable future and I can still enjoy the top down summer rides and mild trail runs.
Hmmmmm, what to do?
As for the original poster, as mentioned above I agree with keeping it low and road worthy. You'll be glad you did in the long run. Maybe a 2" spacer lift and some 32-33" AT or MT's.
OMG!!! I look just like Jay Sherman.
