    Hi guys I keep seeing 4" lifts on here, and wondering how much excessive wear does this cost on CV, trans, axles in general? Especially if off roading? Anybody have a 4" lift and put some serious miles on it, notice any issues yet?

    It reminds me of the stupidity of wranglers, people throwing dumbass rough country 4-6" lifts, and than having Control Arm Mounts literally ripping out from the Axles, where you had to re-weld and repair them.

    Anyway would love to get something as crazy as a 6" lift with tire upgrades, but it just seems that the angles would be all off, and you'll be rebuilding you're whole suspension in no time.

    Thoughts from people? Who have lifted? Was thinking the safest is probably a 1.5-2" Spring lift some bigger tires and call it a day.

    Got about 3600 mi. on the ATP 2" Spacer lift. No issues. Except the sway bar heim link get grit and dirt in the ball link and makes a creaking noise. but not really an issue for me.

    There is an individual on here with 10K miles on his 4" lift and he hasn't had any issues so far. We did the 1.5 and now we want more.

    Jeremiah, Yeah Kind of know what what you mean about wanting more lift. After I did the ATP 2" I was like "really, it's lifted" I can't tell the difference. Was thinking about those springs from ATP but I talked to one of the reps. at ATP and he said they are significantly stiffer. Not a big fan of that.

    Yeah I might try and source a set of stock trailhawk springs to give ours a little more height.
