This is Gold. People that spend $5000 on upgraded Suspension hate on the guy that spends $200 but both at least 99.9% of them mall crawl 99.9% of the time. Unless you trailer it the the ride and then put it back on the trailer you are in that group 99.9% of your riding is done where the stock setup would have done just fine not hating its just a fact. Yes, I'm in that 99.9%. Now the guy that spent $200 is hating also on the guy for spending $5000. It also truth is its all perspective. Me I'm both I will ride on the $200 get board with it add the $3,500 setup yes thats what it cost me I will build my toy free labor lol. Then I will be pissed because now it makes more noise and can only do the same thing. From what I have seen and I maybe wrong but probably only a hand full of spots on a hand full of trails that the stock Badlands SaS can't go. How many of us can't live going around that one spot. Its all perspective. Now I'll get out my popcorn lolLeveling kits are 100% aesthetic to “fix” the rake… at least with a body lift you can squeeze in bigger tires.
In the Jeep world leveling kits are the gateway mod to everything else. Someone gets their first jeep… joins a forum and thumbs through old threads, and finds out they can make it look “better” for $50.00…
The next step in their evolution to to start their very first thread titled: “Whats the biggest tire I can fit on stock suspension?”
Later in that same thread, they will learn that the “315” in “315/70r17” does not refer to the diameter… but it kind of does… it’s complicated…
Then they will learn what “Load E” means.
Their maturation will conclude when they realize that a spacer lift will “get them the same thing” as a coilover and UCA replacement, at a fraction of the cost…
And their last post on the forum will be them telling everyone who spent more than $200 on their lift “idiots.”
Because it looks cooler and already has 4.7 gears and I hate the smell of diff oil. lolSo why should I spend $5,000 on sasquatch then for a mini lift and one inch of tires, instead of $50 on spacers, will it give me a larger Blinker fluid reservoir?
