The only real stress the suspension has gone through is a Canadian winter, the roads get EXTREMELY rough sometimes with snow and ice build up. Imagine a constant washboard road and you'll have the right idea. If i was actually doing some trail running and the suspension was running through it's full range often, i would have heeded everyone's warning and not run the extra lift. Upper ball joint failure seems to be the main concern. The new upper control arms that are coming out from JBA and others would fix that.

Basically it sounds like you using it like i am, so i'd say go for it. Total cost was about $400 canadian funds. Just 2 RC kits to get the two spacers for the back. The front i used some existing aluminum spacers i had around and put them on top of one of each of the RC spacers.

Tires are a 265/70/17
haha yeah sounds fine to me!

maybe i will try it!
good thing to know that could be done. lol i would have had no idea!

and by tire size i mean what size as in 32"s or 33"s? lol
