Im in the same boat. it looks good.After much searching, I have found this mock up. I’ll have the hybrid FWD. I was wondering if anyone knows the max lift kit that can be added without major modifications? I’ve never owned a FWD truck or hybrid so I don’t know the determine factors. Yes, I know it will decrease mpg, acceleration, and is not for off road. I like the look and would like to see how close I can get to this mock up within reason. Thanks!
I know, it’s crazy. I just want to see the difference of lifting a FWD truck. But it looks awesome in my opinion…Just ridiculous.
again.... No, saying "just ridiculous" does not confer anything, it's what a troll would say and how you're defending it by saying it was helpful is ludicrous. What you're saying now is somewhat helpful although the OP already stated that he knows it will have a negative effect on MPG. So your statement is redundant and not needed. Let the OP post in peace. This is supposed to be a safe place. lolIf it prevents someone from destroying their eco pu my opinion was extremely helpful.
NopeIf it prevents someone from destroying their eco pu my opinion was extremely helpful.
Saying it is ludicrous doesn’t offer any help. A helpful answer would be: it is ludicrous because of such and such. Since you have “40 years” of experience, I asked what the maximum lift for a fwd truck could be without major, expensive upgrades. (Yes, I know this truck could be very different from every other FWD trucks)Apparently there's a lot of folks that can't handle other opinions. I've been a mechanic for 40 years and think I have something to contribute. I'm certainly not a troll. If I can save someone some grief I should get thanked and not called a troll.
Ok thanksI told you what I thought. If I wasn't clear enough-DON'T MODIFY THE HEIGHT!
Thank you. I was simply wondering the MECHANICAL difficulties I may face. Im still going to do it, I just wanted an idea. 😎Here's a post relevant to the information you're looking for, and not only is it coherent but they use full sentences with detailed information.
affecting the miles per gallon is the least of your worries it may void the warranty and messes with the CV axles
Lift Kit for Hybrid?This may be a stupid question. I suppose there will soon be after market lift kits for the Maverick. Is putting a lift kit on a hybrid the same as as an Ecoboost engine? Would adding a 3” lift kit negatively affect any components, functions or workings of the hybrid system? The reason I ask...www.maverickchat.com
