Based on interactions with @S33k3r
since I joined TYF, I don't believe there was any personal attack on your professional experience related to mechanical abilities or knowledge about off-road builds intended here.
I used to have a Jeep TJ that came to me with a 3" body lift. That was more for the aesthetics, giving the 33" tires the appearance of decent clearance. But IMHO, I would be the first to say that I did not consider that a "real lift" because it was more for looks than improving any real off-road capabilities.
This group has been one of the best I have been involved with in the auto hobby. From what I have seen, there is always a willingness to help any way possible.
I would tend to agree that changing geometry might be a better long term solution towards eliminating the need for the front end having to be constantly replaced/upgraded.
Take the high road and end the return volleys of snarkiness and negativity... Time to let it go and move on in a more positive way.
