I'm not into lifted carts, so I don't know much about lifting them other than the higher the lift, the higher the center of gravity and the subsequent reduced stability associated with raising the center of gravity.

However, I do have a question: If stock height has sufficient clearance for 20" tires, why lift the body 6" for tires that are only 3" taller?

They do have 5" lift kits. I have installed several of them from different vendors.

Uh oh! You just committed a fireable offense.

JohnnyB indicated that the tires are 3" taller, so wouldn't a 3" or 4" lift be adequate?

I saw it, but didn't understand you were laughing at 5". I thought you were joking about them not being available.

but i do think the Jakes kits only come in 3" & 6" ;)

FYI, for tire clearance, I also use 1.5" spacers. BUT check tire turning clearance before you go flying down the road... if I turned all the way to the left and stopped quickly, the brake peddle just touched my tread. Scared the crap out of me. I had to grind just a bit off the back side of the brake linkage...
