Forum Friday: Lifted Tiggy

We’ve all been there, right? You buy a car and say “This is just my daily driver. It’ll just get me from point A to point B. Yep, just an appliance.” And then…

VWvortex member Dubluv2003 picked up a used Tiguan with those same intentions. And one trail excursion in a friend’s Jeep changed everything. Dubluv went on a mission to build the first lifted Tiguan. And that mission took some time.

You see, when Dubluv decided to modify his daily, no one was making aftermarket parts for  Volkswagen’s small SUV. He spent hours scouring the internet looking for anything that would give him some more ground clearance. It took some time, but eventually, he found some suspension spacers. In Russia.

About four weeks later, the spacers arrived and he and a buddy got to work. It wasn’t easy, and there were some bumps along the way (pun: intended?), and in time Dubluv2003 created, he believed, the first lifted Tiguan.

And he didn’t stop there. The little truck went through a series of wheel and tire combinations. Dub sourced some other cool accessories and now the truck is looking pretty butch.

The thread isn’t long, but it’s a cool one none the less. Here’s hoping Dubluv2003 is out running the trails in his little lifted Tiggy.
