No, but it also will not make it a whole lot more susceptible to roll-over. By their very nature, Jeeps are high center of gravity vehicles and should be driven as such.

You can roll a Corvette or Viper or anything for that matter. The wrangler has an increased chance of that. Just dont drive like an Idiot! Slow down for corners and dont crank the wheel sharp.

Im putting a 5.5 inch lift in mine.

Besides thats why they put roll bars in them.

Just a thought here, but dads do not like to proven wrong. Find someone with a lift like you want and take him for a ride in it and feel it for himself.

4Point makes a good point (as usual). You need to get your Dad more involved. Take him wheelin' in your stocker and let him see how fun it is. Then point out the road that you can't go on because you are not lifted and your tires are too small. Start talking about how much fun you can have together wheelin'. The whole Father / Son bonding thing. Ask for help working on it, make him think he is an expert on auto maintenance. Talk about how much fun wrenching on the Jeep together would be. Then leave offroad magazines laying around the house. It would work on me... Hell, I'd buy you a nice long arm lift for your Jeep if you managed to pull good grades for the next year.

(In case you are wondering, no, I'm not looking to adopt...)

I think that its not the product your dad needs to worry about... its how YOU use it that matters...

A gun cant hurt anyone by itself... its the user that handles it that ends up hurting someone?... hope you get my meaning there...lmao
