Re: Quadra Lift or Steel
QL is one of my favorite things on the JGC. The fact that it lowers to make getting in and out easier for my wife is a big plus. I also lower it at drive through windows, just to make that a little bit easier. While I haven't had the opportunity to test it, having the available lift for off road is just great.
I look at the QL like I look at snow. Here is So Cal, for most of us, snow is a choice. We can drive up in to and experience it when we want to, but we don't have to take it home with us, or live with it the entire season, much less the rest of the year.
Since I don't need a 1"-2" lift every day, 24x7, it's nice not having to live with it every day. I appreciate that a full time lift offers extra benefits, but for my use cases, they're not enough to matter, and I don't off road enough, or go to places that require a dedicated, lifted vehicle and the larger tires a permanent lift can offer.
Perfect all around compromise for me.
