Raising a vehicle & it’s center of gravity is more about ego and less about usefulness. Driving & recovery techniques will typically get you much farther, and at much less cost.
When you balance the cost vs. versatility vs. actual amount of use, it rarely makes good economic sense.
Most of us have learned that those harder to get to places aren’t one bit better than the easier ones, and certainly not worth the extra cost, time, & effort involved in getting there.
Back in the days when I was highly interested in exploring the unknown, I quickly realized that rather than beating my vehicles to death, utilizing an ATV/UTV/Snowmobile etc. to do the exploring with was a much better choice.
