Product Use Information

As a general rule, the taller a vehicle is the easier it will roll. We
strongly recommend, because of rollover possibility, that seat belts and
shoulder harness be worn at all times. Avoid situations where a side
rollover may occur.

Braking performance and capabilities are decreased when significantly
larger/heavier tires and wheels are used. Take this into consideration
while driving, Also, speedometer recalibration is necessary when larger
tires are installed.

Do no add, alter, or fabricate any factory or after-market parts which
increase vehicle height over the intended height of the Daystar Product
purchased. Mixing component brands, lifts, and/or combining body lift
with a suspension lift voids all warranties. Daystar makes no claims
regarding lifting devices and excludes any and all implied claims. We
will not be responsible for any product that is altered.
