    <font color=purple> It all depends how you drive it, I wouldn't do much off camber trail riding with it and wouldn't take to many fast corners while driving on the street, but normal driving wouldn't be too bad........just an aweful high center of gravity is all. I had a truck with a Superlift 12" suspension lift and a 3 " body lift with 40" mudders and I felt like I was going to tip over all the time. Looking back it was a complete waste, I was trying to be one of the bigger trucks around my town......not worth it.</font color=purple>

    <font color=purple>Even with all that there was still a guy who had I think 15" springs and 4" body lift with 44" Hawgs ! It was a Ford called the Terminator. He used to get pulled over all the time but never got a ticket, I guess he knew what the laws were because he went to court a few times and they never could find anything in the books to get him with. Riding in that was like walking around on Godzilla's shoulders ! I'm surprised I never got a nose bleed.</font color=purple>

    Nothing wrong with a 6 or 8 inch lift. I think 11 is a bit much, but its your car

    I don't think 11 inches will clear 44's. I'm running that combo with 40's, and while I have decent clearance, I would rub like crazy with 44's on. My truck is a 72. They have slightly better fender clearance. Now if your hacking the sh$t out of your fenders...no prob. As for flipping, it all depends on your driving habits and the type of wheelin your doing.
