The kit doesn't make your truck any more dangerous its the driver. The lift might actually make you safer in a wreck cuz you are higher than the other car if you doon't roll over it. The onlt thing id higher center of gravity=easier to roll. Just know your trucks limits and don't get stupid.

Haha. Does English really matter that much. I can't imagine that in any regular, real world situation someone is going to stop and tell you no because a comma was missing.

I think changing the dynamics in anyway to a vehicle that wasn't produced to those specs is a little more unsafe...but nothing to worry about if your work is solid lol!

Go ahead and write me a business letter with mis-spellings or missing punctuation asking me for my business. If you can't communicate properly no one will ever take you seriously.

It depends what this 'real world situation' is. If you're scribbling some graffiti on a wall, probably not. But if you're a lawyer writing a legal documnet, probably it will. It really doesn't take that much more time to write it properly.

Back to the point, It does raise your center of gravity making you slightly more prone to rollovers, but wider tires will make it more stable

Its not unsafe.... Just like with any vehicle, Know your limitations.

It might help with your insurance because your higher than most of the other people on the road, but then again it will equal back out because of the higher risk of roll-over.
