Are Big Lifted Trucks More Likely to Crash or Flip in Off-roading?
Yes, big lifted trucks are more likely to crash or flip when off-roading. The occurrence of a major rollover accident is increased because lifted trucks have beefier suspensions that require greater travel than a more modest truck or one that is not lifted at all. When off-roading, big lifted trucks must rebound after they jump in the air and make contact with the ground. It is at this point of rebound that big lifted trucks are likely to crash or flip, because it can be difficult to control the bouncing. Especially when the bouncing effect is multiplied, because of the big lifted truck’s height and beefed up suspension.
