you know, if it wasn't for me wheeling the thing and needing 4wd, I'd be driving a lifted 2wd.

i had my 2wd double lifted, but put it through a lot of things, not just for looks.. its all in what a person wants. Plus this topic has been going on since the stone age.

I am asked that question a lot since my truck got lifted

One reason the edge is harder to drop.

Two I like to sit up higher and be able to clear things without worrying

I drove a lifted 2wd for my last truck. Liked being higher. Lots of 2wd friendly trails around here, just need ground clearance.

I never understood the lifted 2 wheel drive thing either. 4x4 should go up and 2x4 should be slammed with a V8 under the hood, imo. But to each their own.

jeeps are like tampoons every pussy needs one

not to hate one the 2wd trucks being lifted but trucks are ment to be used not lowered and turned into cars i personally think if your going to turn your ford ranger into a lowered bagged slammed dropped piece of shit then you shouldnt have bought it in the first place or maybe you should have bought a more douche friendly vehicle

I don't like lowered trucks and i don't think i would buy a 2wd truck but then again sometimes i want a nice 2wd street truck that is a lowered a little bit with a nice v8. lol im just confused. but i cant see having a lifted 2wd truck.
