Yup very true. I can't believe all you guys will just disrespect your parents like that, thats just messed up. Normally if I find facts like the one I just quoted above mine let me do what I want. But I can basically do what I want with my truck as long as I pay for whatever it is.

Funny Thread, you should have just done it, i doubt they would have noticed it.

My GF didnt want me to lift my old truck... i lifted it, and put 31's on it and she didnt even notice, other than to ask "Why is it suddenly so hard to get into your truck? Its like i have to jump in!?!" .... i responded with... "Hmm, i have no idea"

Myfriend had this same problem when he was 18, with a yoda 4X4. He ended up leaving it stock when they threatened to kick him out. They used that same CG argument, and he caved. Personally, I think that as long as you live under their roof, and they pay all the bills, you need to respect their wishes. Now if you are paying rent, and half of the bills, you do what you want as a resposible adult. Untill then, they are still the resposible adults, and what they say goes.

The speed will be off but only a bit. You can get a programmer or a Superlift Truspeed to adjust the speedo.

They'll be off but its nothing a little bit of math can adjust. Its not going to be harmful or anything if its off.

BOOM! Its financed by them or their name is involved with it.

You need to *respect* your parents wishes as you wouldn't even have that truck if not for them.

Technically speaking, its THEIR truck and your have the benefit/privy of driving it. It might not be ' cool ' to ' not have a lift ', but would walking be cooler?

Give it a thought.
