I don't believe that the switch on the dash marked " 2H 4H 4L
" knows the difference between stock, lifted, or dropped
When I want to go up a steep muddy hill or get out on a snow and ice covered roadway to get groceries or gas for the generator or if I want to pull arond back and then later, back up the hill around front with trailer maybe and not wanting to tear up the grass with wheel spin ...... I think my FX4 will do it fine, stock, lifted, or dropped
On the roads, parking lots, gravel roads, woods paths, friends steep driveway, and interstates I drive 99.44% of the time the lowered stance would do me and the wife much more good than that "need a step ladder" look would.
I know a lower center of mass equates to less roll in turns for a more stable feel. I also don't like to have my wife climbing in and out from up high with her "good clothes" on, doesn't look "dignified".
My Subaru Forester is not lifted, it does great off road?
Those who have a "problem" with lowering a 4X4 have a problem that I can't help them with. I'm just glad it ain't my problem.
Carry on all ........
