Another thing. Yes, if you lower the Jeep and add anti-sway bars, etc. it will corner better, but please do not think you're driving a sports car here. It's still a heavy truck. You want to tangle with twisties and curves at hight speed? Buy a sports car not a truck. JMHO.

Re: Big Red, not so big anymore...

thats def. your opinion...because with a few simple suspension mods the wk can outhandle sports cars. The SRT is a perfect example and the suspension mods from it can all be put on the WK with no modifications needed. My WK easily out handles my wifes 08 Lexus IS250 with the sport package and X package

Re: Big Red, not so big anymore...

I have to agree with the lifted Jeeps handling like a dog, who knows how many parts i have changed do to the geometry change, as of now i have another toasted rack and pinion along with fried rear axle bearings, hate to say it but i might not be that far behind with the lowering part. and i do mean like 2 inches or so..

Re: Big Red, not so big anymore...

I'll just conclude by saying you own a truck. Yes you can modify anything to make it something else but why buy a truck and want it to behave like a sports car? Doesn't make sense to me, but you like it? Go for it!

Re: Big Red, not so big anymore...

I drove my lifted ZJ for many years and miles including towing and never had a complaint. I don't expect a truck to be a sports car or even a regular family sedan. It isn't and is not intended to be. Look at the history of Jeep. Until the SRT8, they have been all about off-road capability. Every new 4X4 tries to outdo what? Right, Jeep. Now CJ's and Wranglers are the most capable off-road true but there are thousands of Cherokees and Grand Cherokees that go off road and do very well, thank you. The SRT8's are amazing but certainly depart from traditional Jeep heritage. I know, you "lower it" guys are going to say: wake up, welcome to the 21st century and stuff like that. All true, but I hold by the tradition of Jeep: It rules off-road and if you lift it right, you do not give up much at all and gain a lot. We'll see who's still driving when the snow flies.

Re: Big Red, not so big anymore...

Over the last 30+ years I have owned a lot of Jeeps starting with a 63' CJ5A and the last being an 07' WK. Some have been lifted, some have been tweaked to go fast and some remained stock. All depended on what I want from a particular Jeep. Matters not what someone else thinks is the "right" thing to do with your Jeep only that you are happy with what you decide to do. The Jeep is indeed an American icon and it stands for the individual freedom to make one's own choices and live with the consequences.

Re: Big Red, not so big anymore...

Very Well Said Joe!

Thanks and REP for you......

i speak for myself but that is the attitude we kind of expect around here. Everyone do what they think is the best. When asked for it, opinions are shared.

Its the name calling and other BS that we don't like and as Scott said 'won't have it here'.
