A bull? I had it mount it and thought of him as a nice guy! Would definitely do business with him again.

It is not just the look. If you go off road, which we do a lot, sure gives you much more clearance. About 32,000 miles now with the lift and no problem at all.

Stay well, Ara and Spirit

PS: the lift did not help here!!! Took the totally wrong line on this road...

Yes! I knew that side of the road was soft because I had already gone through the other way, yet, a "Duh! moment...".
We walked to Base Camp. The funny part was Spirit thinking he is jumping off on ground but landing in a foot of water!
I carry a SAT Phone, some Friends 5 miles away insisted they come and tow us out. They were bored I guess.
So anyhow, that is the story!

We need more stories like this!

I just got some General AT2s in 225/75/16 and I'm looking into lifting my E a bit after I finish bagging my audi.

These cars seem like they were born to be offroad, just a little under engineered for it.

They are not Jeeps but do quite and surprisingly well. Nothing dramatic. I am always happy with their performance.

Getting stuck always comes with an adventure. Beemerchef, your right they are no Jeep; but I am always impressed with the durability and ability of these underestimated little vehicles. I plan on fabricating a snorkel kit for the E here soon!

I'm amazed on what the E can do. You all are truly in touch with the elements (no pun intended) of the Earth.

Safe trekking my friends!
