Sure you can ask and I don't take it as you being an ***. I think the 2 previous answers hit the nail on the head though. I have never made it a secret that my truck is a 2WD, I'm not one of those owners trying to pose as a 4WD. I got mine lifted for looks only and because it's what I wanted and tell me my truck doesn't look good.
Now let me ask a question without coming across like an ***. What's the use of buying a 4WD, lifting it and keeping it as a pavement queen? IMO most people (2WD & 4WD owners) all lift their trucks initially for looks only. Most of the 4WD trucks aren't doing any serious offroading where they need the lift for extra ground clearance. Taking your 4WD and running it through the sand or through some muddy dirt isn't offroading. Not saying you aren't truly using your 4WD, but most aren't. I don't blame them though because when you add the cost of the truck, financing costs and all the mods on my truck I'm approaching $50k for my truck. There's no way I'd take a $50k offroading and tear it up. This truck is going to last me a good long time.
