who regrets a lift?

Just curious, for those that loved the stock ride but were obsessed with the look like of a lift and bigger tires like I am, do you regret the change? if so, why?

I liked how my stock Jeep rode and handled but it sucked on the trails I wanted to be able to do. I like how my Jeep rides and handles better now and I love how it wheels. It has nothing to do with "lift", there's more to it than that.

I regret that the PO put on a body lift instead of a suspension lift. I would have actually rather they left it stock now that I've put some much time and money into making it mine.. so I could do it the way I wanted instead of having a mod I may have to take away at some point.

Yes and no. I regret not going bigger, but if I went bigger Id regret not starting slow. I love the look and the visibility of the higher rig, but I love the low center of gravit and the overall blending in with the rest of the cars that comes with a stock ride. But overall Im very satisfied with what I did. I didnt break the bank and I greatly improved the look and offroad performance of my jeep.

Cant say that I regret my lift but I wish that I knew more about what else went along with it. Like a sye for a 4" lift, longer brake lines for disconnects, different gears for bigger tires etc... Would have saved me a lot of time and money in the long run but at least the majority of the big mods are out of the way now.

Only bad lifts are regretted. I regretted my SkyCrapper BB but fixed that about a year later. I only regret the money I wasted on it just to give it away piece by piece.
