It's to make it more beefy and a wider stance. I ride on the beach and flat trials in California and don't need much clearance only for the tires really. I removed the OEM shot shocks awhile back with some 3'' shocks. It lifted it like between 1 and 2 inch's. I'm going to be cutting an inch off of the fender flairs so keep that in mind. Right now as the way it stands I have about 32'' clearance.
My back yard. Sutter Buttes. Best 4 wheeling around! All private owned and few get to enjoy it's rugged beauty first hand.
