Is there a purpose to a lift kit other than the looks of it? Does it do something to the suspension or something?
Higher ground clearance and the ability to use larger tires but it comes at a price. If you lift it to far you end up changing the CV joint angles enough that it adds extra stress and can cause them to fail. Most kits recomend that you replace the half axles with stronger ones.

On one of the Pioneer sites someone had a homemade one that was supposed to be good and cheap, just can't recall where I saw it, maybe hondasxs.com

If you need a lift to fit tires then your only be on the road in my opinion seeing no gear reduction in the future and 28s clearing everywhere my 27s sling mud great but I doubt the pioneer will sling 29s with agressive tread but I do think 29s will fit under stock lift no problem. This thing is a goat all it needs is 1 tire most the time to teeter it over to moving again. My tires are 27 inch executioners and they are heavy and on stock rims and a couole others running 28 bighorns no problem slinging chunks of ice and mooses snowballs

I'm certainly not getting a lift kit just for looks. I could care less what others think it looks like as long as I like it. I use lifts for functionality. Lots of deep ruts where I ride and lots of hidden stumps around my land where I hunt. I also use my atvs(and now utv) for working as a medic for off road events in my area. Everything I own except the wife's car and of course my boat have lift kits just for functionality. And as for tires. I've grown out of super aggressive tires like outlaws. Sure they are the best in mud and the biggest on the market (I guess) but my 28 mud lites work just fine for me. Now I just gotta get them on my pioneer!
