As for the lift...
I think that if most owners with what they consider to be "stock" suspension actually measure their actual ride height they will find that it is low at least 1 inch (spring, bushing and even body mount fatigue /wear).
I agree that doing a lift just for looks is just that - for looks.... But then I guess the same can be said for oversized tires.
Oversized tires and suspension lift will decrease fuel mileage, increase driveline stress, raise centre of gravity decrease braking efficiency
We can all argue to what extent but cannot deny the reality.
All that said.... I run 275/65r18 tires mainly because that is a common size with lots of options and a 2" lift that actually only works out to a little over an inch above stock height.
It looks COOL
