Does she have the wheeling experience and need to spend that much cash on 60's.

Please explain. I know you do all your race car suspension and know your stuff, but I fail to see why having more weight down low is a bad thing. Stability is good, especially with female drivers

or maybe it's the right place

as for the 1 ton stuff, good call going that route imo. my daughter has been driving my rig since she was 10yo (now 14) and I never worry about her breaking something.

True story.
Yes low weight is good for CG and stability while wheeling at slow speeds. But when you are driving at higher speeds, down bumpy roads your springs and shocks need to control the axle and keep it on the ground. If you don't have enough sprung mass (body, frame, motor, etc) to counter act what it takes for your springs and shocks to do the job, the vehicle can become unstable. Basically the heavier your axles are, the less stable your vehicle will be at speed. Bumps, evasive maneuvers, etc will cause you to crash easier. Decreasing unsprung mass is one of the basic things you can do to improve a vehicles performance. Cherokees have very low sprung mass.

Well that just makes perfect sense Then again, very few people putting 1 tons under Jeeps are doing it for high speed use. It improves stability and COG for crawling and low speed, but hurts high speed control/stability.
