    Default spring over lift yes or no

    Ok guys I hav a friend that has a 2001 grand cherokee that has a new 11 inch spring over lift on it, and some massive 35 inch tires. I'm thinking of buying this thins. It also has a v8 in it. But sadly is an automatic. Now I'm not a rich guy I hav a family u kno. Wat I would like to know is wats the Maintence on that kind of thing. I'd think with a lift like that shit would be breaking all the time u kno. I'm just worried I don't wanna get sometin that's gunna be a big paperweight in my driveway next week. I want something I can hit some trails in and just hav a good time I like to discover shit. So wat do u think is an soa a good thing wats the pros and coms of a jeep like this?

    Well, first off, Grand Cherokee's have coils at all 4 corners, so unless someone put leaf packs under it, it's impossible to do a 'spring over'


    Second, 11" of lift is absolutelty crazy on a Grand, or any mid size rig, for that matter.

    I'd stay away from that rig like it had the plague.

    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.
