    if your already running 33's a soft ride 4" will make it look the part and put some air between the ground (rocks) and your frame but more idealy your soft rockerpanels i recomend you lift it

    id say thats my 2 cents but my last 2 cents got sucked up by my K5 long ago

    I say don't mess with it. If it is doing fine don't f-it up. That is what I decided with my CJ5. It runs fine and drives fine so don't mess with it. Mess with the K5 to make it the offroad toy and leave my Jeep alone. I suggest you do the same with you truck and mess with the 75 since it is already pretty wasted as a DD. Leave the DD alone so you know you can get to and from work or whereever whenever you want.
