Few things can match the joy of buying a brand new vehicle. The euphoria, pride, and sense of accomplishment, looking forward to all those fun miles of driving ahead. But among automotive enthusiasts there is a creeping disease that begins to take hold when a new car goes unmodified for extended periods. The Scientific Term is OEM DUM, or Original Equipment Manufactures Drab Ubiquitous Machines, but the more common name is Stock Jeep Syndrome.
The symptoms might not be obvious at first, but this is a serious, but thankfully curable disease, and the guys over at TerraFlex explain how to identify and combat SJS.
Identifying the symptoms can be tricky at first, but the initial euphoria that accompanies the purchase of a new Jeep can give away to seemingly unexplainable shame. Why isn’t your stock Jeep suddenly good enough anymore? Shame becomes Fear, as friends and family abandon your once-hot ride and a feeling of loneliness sets in. Finally comes Despair, as your stock Jeep becomes an unavoidable drag on every aspect of your life.
Thankfully, TerraFlex has the solution to this socially-crippling disease, and it takes the shape of a suspension lift for every need. By simply raising the ride height of your Wrangler, Wrangler Unlimited, or other Jeep product, you can literally elevate yourself above Stock Jeep Syndrome. After all, there’s nothing like a lifted Jeep to brighten somebody’s day.
Don’t fall victim to Stock Jeep Syndrome, because there are few things sadder than a Jeep with its stock ride height. Just say no to stock ground clearance.
