It's to tall when air starts to get thin.

Re: When is it TOO TALL?

Hey, Hey! I think you're getting close to the limit!? Looking Good.
I think when it's taller than it is long, that's it - but moving the axle foreward helps [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: When is it TOO TALL?

I think it is too tall when you drive under a bridge and you start paying more attention to the maximum height signs! I think you still have a ways to go - looks good!

Re: When is it TOO TALL?

Look's kinda wobbably to me... Good thing you can't drive it over public highways I guess... May kill an innocent when it tips over or when it blinds the poor person following on a dirty road... otherwise for off-road use only looks pretty good when you only involve yourself in your passion.

Re: When is it TOO TALL?

as soon as you flop it, you will figure it out. my personal prefrence is lower but its your rig. but i have flopped mine more than once and am getting alittle tired of doing it. i run a land cruiser with 38s and i don't think i am as high as you, and i am going to lower it a inch or two just to get back to felling more steady on the off camber stuff. later mike
