I think I know just enough about lifts to get confused and ask truly ridiculous questions.
I'm pretty sure I'm going I get a 2-3" suspension lift. I was planning on a slightly taller tire on the stock rims to start with (and if I'm unhappy with the look I can change the wheels around later) Someone mentioned to me that, while lifts are really cool, you aren't changing the height of the axles (unless you start messing with wheel size, I guess).
Now I'm confused. You get more clearance under the truck as a whole but your limiting factor on clearance will still be axle height, which is not being raised by the lift?
So if the axles are essentially the same height, how is that an advantage if you are off roading?
Does that question even make sense? What am I missing here? Help me!
