i figure i'd update this thread and ask if any of the older "off road" guys messed with the body lift. I know there was a few discussions a long time ago about it, just seemed like it didn't go anywhere.
I really want to run 285's, but the suspension setup is just maxed out as it is really. torsion bars and rear washers/spacers is about all it can handle. The extra inch from the body would be perfect, i really don't feel like bein a test dummy for it though. I'm also not sure how well the 3.2 will like the 285's, its very slow as it is.
The reason i asked is the ML is due for some service. I have 156k on it, original suspension and all. I also am running 265/75 Pro Comps, and i doubt i'll see 20k out of them. I also just punctured one an hour ago. So new tires will be coming up (maybe wheels as well). So i'll be retiring it for a while in the spring to get some much needed service done.
Other then whats been mentioned (bumpers,shiftergate,steering rack), everything else seems like it'd be fine for an inch.
Any new news i'm not aware of fellers?
