    I always felt most cars were chopped too much. I think 2" is just enough to make people wonder but not lose the lines of the car. IMO

    Anything less than 4" is a waste of time. 4" to 5" looks the best. Channeling-NEVER!

    Just my opinion.

    Don't chop too much. I've done that before. It may look cool, but it gets to be
    uncomfortable in just a couple of days. An inch too much can ruin your ride.

    I think on a full fendered car this is perfect. IMO too much chop on a fendered car doesn't look right. Fenderless can still look good with 5 or 6 inches, it depends on stance. Too tall with too much chop looks off, to me anyway.
     
  26. CHOP IT! around 7 or so...
