Re: Lower or lift?

I have an aftermarket warranty 5 yrs 100k miles so idk if I can take it off road... and your right about the apocalypse... like I see the lowered ones and i'm like man that's nice but how am I going to get over that curb. It would probably rip off the bumper.

Re: Lower or lift?

I've been going through the same issue... SRT wheels or lift and big tires???? I think lowering it would be easier and cheaper IMO

Lowering puts less stress on the suspension.

Yeah. I use to do that type of stuff.....then I grew up.

It will be funny if a cop caught you. That's reckless driving.

Well it looks like any modifications will void the warranty

Re: Lower or lift?

It wouldn't void the warranty anymore then jumping curbs will. I lifted mine after a summer of camping & wheeling & didn't want to be dragging everything on the ground. If you have a legit reason to lift it, then lift it. I hope you didn't pay extra to have a warranty on a 4x4 vehicle, but keeps you from taking it off the pavement.
