Look up and you will notice the bodies on these cars are rising. The latest 2-wheel drive monsters use a 6-inch, up to a 17-inch, suspension lift to raise the car above the enormous chrome wheels. These extreme lift kits cost around $2,500. Factor in another $10,000 on wheels and tires and the accessories quickly add up to more than the value of the car.

2-wheel drive looks like 4-wheel drive
Raising your box, bubble or donk requires money and courage. Like-minded car builders will marvel at your monster dub machine. But stares, chuckles and comments about the lack of 4-wheel-drive are sure to follow.
The handling of a high-rise dub monster will likely suffer as much as a lifted truck on 35-inch tires. Broken suspension parts can make a mess out of lifted G-body in a hurry. I imagine roll bars and KC Lights will be the next step in the evolution of these monster dub machines.
