Re: High Lift Axle Pros and Cons
I opted for the lift axle with the though of why not, I could likely need it some day. I drive lots of gravel roads, and a few dirt roads/trails, and have come nowhere near needing the capacity.
If I was to do it again, I doubt I would get it. The standard straight axle provides quite good clearance.
If you had a full-sized pickup and towed often to remote wilderness locations using lots of off-road trails, it would definitely be worth it.
