I have no idea what any of that means. You are obviously experienced.

One has to consider that the driver of the lifted rubi is not very talented. But I have to believe that neither of the subjects have actually been off roading for real for him to have this opinion.

My boys Jeep and my 4Runner, not the best pics but all I have right now. As I said, his is pretty mild. Nothing crazy on mine either. One day after it isn't my daily driver I'll do more, but no reason to right now. If you think mine won't do anything and more than this Jeep then your on crack. You guys with a "4 inch lift" are also running long travel kits, have fenders trimmed or off and are running 35's or more. Of course mine won't do that right now, let me put the long travel kit and 35's on. Or even a SAS on the front maybe. Yes they can be built, not saying they can't. My point is still valid, the Jeep here sits drastically lower, has very little suspension travel, and is gutless. Nothing wrong with it, runs great, but won't keep up. One other thing, his approach and departure angles are worse than mine. We were testing them out this winter on snowbanks to compare, (all we had) and I easily got up on the bank when his bumper was hitting and stopping him. This was before my lift as well. Again, not saying a Jeep isn't a badass off-road truck with shit tons of ability, but so are the FJ's, 4Runners, Tacoma's and others as well. If you have the money, it's easily accomplished. Now, calm your over sensitive ass's down, wash the sand out of your pussy, and have a beer! Smoke some weed or something and chill. :D

The Efwon Fiddy has a pretty decent approach angle....
