Etennyson, I noticed that you do not have the chrome trim around your windows. How did you remove it?

I used plasti dip to blackout rear trim, around the windows, roof rack, grill, and logo. I have a thread on here that shows it in detail.

It was done last summer and is holding up really well. Still looks brand new!

Looks like a compass.

Re: Lowering The jeep

Tried looking around to see if I could find any info on someone who's dropped just the rear to bring it more level, but I've had no luck.

Any word on how this would work, appear and perform? I'm starting to hate the look of seeing so much wheel gap on mine (in the back mainly), but don't want to slam it so low and getting rid of the rake would be a huge plus too.

I love the stance of oneandonly5680's Jeep, prior to removing his rear load leveling shocks and going all around road magnet springs. I'm tempted to just do the aggressive road magnet drop in the rear (2.8") and not remove anything else, but I don't know how realistic this is or if I'd like it. The least amount of alteration is tempting though, if possible.

If there's any opinion about the matter, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hey, I just lowered mine this week with the mid level springs from Road Magnet and it looks amazing! Sits like the SRT's. The drive is great and barely notice a difference from the before. I will attach pics soon.

Looks much better than just lowering rear or doing eibachs IMO.
