Default Off Roading to the MAX

Surely I'm not the only one . . . I can't be, the only one who enjoys going out off roading. As a young lass I had very little say in the car my parents gave me. Safety first! They yelled as I begged for a Jeep Wrangler that could take me across and through all those lovely trails around my home. Instead of course they bought me the PT Cruiser, a great car no doubt. Good gas mileage when driven correctly and nice handling

Yet my thirst in insatiable. I'm tired of riding with people while off roading, I want to be the driver.

How do I need to knock my cruiser up a notch so I can take it off roading?

Can I get a lift kit?
Bigger tires?
Better Suspension?
More power?

Let's go off roading.

You're kidding, right?

There is nothing out there for Lifting PTs, but plenty of stuff for lowering them.

Sure there is power add-ons, but mostly (Turbos) they give more HP at high RPM, not so much low-revs torque.

The tight front-end limits the size of front tires.
The engine is low and vulnerable to fatal damage from the most moderate of hazards.

The money spent on getting a PT ready for even mild off-roading would be better invested if you just bought an old Jeep to play with.

If the Wranglers are too 'exposed', there are plenty of old Cherokees out there. They are nice and big and safe.
I just tell anyone who asks that "PT" stands for "Plymouth's Tombstone"
