I’ve really thought about a lift. Cant quite get a clear answer on wether or not the ds lift kit would work on the carryall or not. I know I can go 205/65-10 at stock height. Which will lift the cart almost 3 inches just in tire height

Ty. I’m very torn. It’s just a street cart for the neighborhood. I wanted something different Han the Jones’. Trying for like an old Skool 50’s truck look.

I think thats a personal decision isn't it. Depends on what you want or need.

I'm not a fan of lifted carts for just knocking around, but, again thats just personal. I lowered mine and installed 10" wheels. Plus I like just sliding in and out. I happen to like Old Skool cuz I'm old.

I guess i am also on the old school bandwagon. Lowering mine also. Just bought a stock cart 2 weeks ago , sliding in and out is nice. No lift kit on this one. Time will tell, sell the 6 in. lifted one or keep em both. :thumbsup:

Sold the non lifted cart 03 ds. Put a 4in. lift on my 6 in. lifted cart. It lowered the cart 1 in. I took the 23in. tires off and replaced with 22's. Got another in. lower. Not as low as i would like it, But it is better. Alot of money and work for not much gain. Love and learn. :kickcan: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Yep, as said, I like them low. I slammed mine just to be different. Easier to get in and out of. Now I must be getting bored cuz I'm thinking of adding air bags so I can bounce around.

Kept it low for stability. Don’t get low profile tires because it rides rougher. Just get a nice set of 205/65-10 rims and tires and adjust the suspension if needed to haul heavier loads. This makes for a good ride and a stable cart on hills. Especially with a load in the back.

Lately folks have mentioned they're kinda sorry they bought lifted carts, saying they looked kewl at the time. But now are tired as to how hard they are to get on. After-al, we're getting old. We're all retired folks.

And I agree about tires. I'm not a fan of low-profiles. I don't like the look or ride. I guess I'm just old school, I like nice wheels with real tires.

If you downsized only 1 inch on the wheels you only went 1/2 inch lower. The other 1/2 in is noticeable by the fender gap
