This vehicle has been modified to enhance off road performance and has unique handling characteristics. Because of the higher center of gravity and larger tires, this vehicle handles and reacts differently than many passenger cars, both on and off road. You must drive it safely! Extreme care should be taken to prevent vehicle rollover or loss of control, which can result in serious injury or death. Avoid sudden sharp turns or abrupt maneuvers. Generally, braking performance and capabilities are decreased when significantly larger/heavier tires are used, especially when used in combination with transfer case low-range reduction kits. Take this into consideration while driving. Do not add, alter or fabricate any factory or aftermarket parts to increase vehicle height over the intended height of the Tera Manufacturing product purchased. Mixing component brand is not recommended. Tera Manufacturing will not be responsible for any altered product or any improper installation or use of our products. We will be happy to answer any questions concerning the design, function, and correct use of our products. It is ultimately the buyer’s responsibility to have all bolts/nuts checked for tightness after the first 100 miles and then every 3,000 miles. Wheel alignment, steering system, suspension and drive line systems must be inspected by a qualified professional mechanic at least every 3,000 miles.
