Found this crazy lift at the mall today

I was curious to know if any of you knew approximately how large this lift really is? Just to clarify, I am in no way interested in hummers, nor doing this to my jeep; However, I am still curious what a jeep with this lift would look like? The last picture is it next to my 4 inch lift, 35 inch tire jeep (the jeep sits under 6'6").

Rancho makes a 4" lift for H2, but that looks taller, like an 8".

Someone is compensating... Looks like someone went into 4WP and started picking out stuff.

Haha, Yup, I agree. Looks terrible, and is the most overcompensation vehicle I have ever seen.

That is no 4" lift, My jeep is 4 inches (the white one). The one he has looks like it's closer to 12" or more

Is it a combination of suspension and body lift?

Look at the lower control arm. First rock and this is just a big metal display. The jeep in the picture actually has more ground clearance.

That is a Full Traction Suspension and have seen their lifts on Chevy 2500HD. Their SEMA truck had a 14/16" lift in 2011. The steering components use aluminum blocks. Of course you use hardened steel bolts so I think you see the weak spot. Most of these lifts actually sit on rubber bushings so there is very little flex. Nothing like spending an addition 10-15k in suspension and tires just to make that formidable trek to the local mall.

Who cares. He has not increased his ground clearance.

To me, it's the definition of worthless.


There's a butt for every seat, they say. I'm sure the owner is very proud of it.

I've seen this ugly beast around town!
Never mind the ground clearance, I'd like to take a moment to ridicule how tiny those wheels wind up looking with all that additional height

A girl in a hummer sneered at my jeep on the yellowhead today. I left her in the dust real quick 'cause my lil TJ is a speed demon compared to that POS.

I used to make fun of those guys with those lifts and I learned they are the best guys to buy shocks off of

I picked up 4 fox shocks for 400 bucks from a guy like that , so I love them now
