body lifts just seem like a waste to me, unless im going big, like 31s or something. you dont gain any suspension travel, and id have the same amount of ground clearance as a guy with a 3 inch lift with 29s.
I turned them, and they didnt seem much worse than [pugs.
I have driven morganms rig with 29s and its not bad on gearing. especially in low range, where it matters. and that hatch aint stock under the hood
Its just something I was looking at and thinking about. I dont think I need a 3/4inch lift, I might make a less involved 2 inch one. its still kinda my street car =]

well It could be done if you dont mind hacking with a reciprocating saw to gain enough clearance. and there are advantages to big tires and no lift off road as long as you are not rubbing. for one you are less top heavy. your drive train is still sitting in the stock position and less likely to get broken.
