When I had Progressive not too long ago, it was clearly stated in the policy that they do not cover vehicles with modified suspensions.

Also, I don't care about collision, but liability is a factor to consider off road.

Anywho, verdict is

MY AGENT SUCKS

I just sent my insurance agent an email, we'll see what she says. In a quick google search, there was a lot of guys with lifted full size trucks saying that Progressive covered them without any issues.

There has to be some sort of a policy available out there!!

ChAD5.0 - any idea what your policy is called? I think I might try to go that route.

And if it is the case that lifted and modified vehicles are not covered, how can I get the last 13 years of premiums back? Good luck with that eh?

And FYI, it seems progressive does have a policy that will insure a vehicle with a 4" or less lift. Probably the route I might have to go, but we'll see.
I have brought this up several times with my insurance people and always get the same answer. If you have an accident somewhere other than on the road it is still insured as long as it was legal to be there. Sand Dunes, two track, even driveing on the ice is covered.

The Hartford offers discount auto insurance rates to members of the AARP. They might insure your CJ5. Happy wheeling to you!
