Yeah IMHO it rides better all the way up vs all the way down. It is really rough in park mode. Curious why anyone would want to lower their WK2 if you like street Jeep style put a set of 24s with 285 35 24 tires to fill the wheel wells up. or if you do not want to go that big put a set of 22s with 305/40/22 tires or 285/45/22 tires and either way you will have almost no wheel gap and you get to keep your factory ride quality, suspension wise anyway.

I've thought about that, black SRT 22's. I feel like this is ok to be the "street Jeep" cause I have a "real" Jeep (at least I think it is), so this way I can have the best of both worlds; form and function.

For the cost I would imagine someone could figure out how to hack/override the 15mph thing. Me thinks we need a good tech to step up to the challenge.

Agreed. It looks really nice at the park ingress/egress height setting. I would just use that all the time on the street if it was an option.
