If you don't go with bumpers and winch and such, then yea, it will ride stiff until the suspension wears in. The lift is close to 4" when first installed. They build it planning on heavy off-road foo-foo will be added.

But as you can see by my tag pic, the suspension can get you into some interesting places.

LOL! The ASA. I remember them. I was part of them. They didn't care about anything west of the Rockies.

Most likely, and not to offend you, they used the money to buy Hot Dogs for one of their west coast only play dates.

The ASA made me boil a bit. When I joined, I hope to push the ASA into a more organized club, with regional coordinators and individual state chapters. I envisioned a club that would work together to coordinate event and ride schedules so that nearly every week, something was happening somewhere, and that an entire wheeling season an event a month was happening.

That never happened. I got little (read: no) support and no real interest in setting up such a structure.

When the Internation Suzuki Association formed, I had high hopes for that. But it seems that the only thing they did was hit up vendors for products to review (read: free stuff) and run the Melt. How international is that?

Maybe someday, riders will ban together and form a real club with the basis to organize events and ride, not review products. It could obtain insurance like a real club does. It could form chapters like a real club does. It go organize group buys and vendor discounts like a real club does.

There are some "club" groups now, like Zu and GonZookin for example. IF they all pulled together under one flag, the possibilities would be endless.

Anyone up for the American Suzuki Truck Owners Club (ASTOC)?

Hmmm, where was I last? As it sits now...

2.5" Calmini lift with Calmini 3" body lift.
31's
plenty of foo-foo
lockers, gears and beef, oh my!

Currently, it sits. i am acquiring the parts for the winter build. Going up on Toys with 35"s, Coil Overs, *hopefully* RatReducer Kick=>Toy (or OTT Kicker II if Rat is unavailable), hydrosteet, Longfields w/30spline 300M shafts, Full-floater rear , and even more foo-foo.

I have to build the GV for Shannon. Ever since I snapped a rear axle shaft and busted the ARB carrier cap at GZ, she's afraid to push it herself. Gotta Shannon-proof it.
