Re: My 2014 Jeep GC Build

The drop on the lowering springs looks great with those wheels.

How are you liking the ride so far with the new setup?

I love my setup! It's actually sits a bit lower in the rear than it shows in these pics.

Great soft road handling and my jeep corners with sports car ability now!

I wouldn't go any lower, my jeep bottoms out a little bit riding through NY and Hoboken.

That's great to hear! I'm awaiting getting my springs installed, so it's nice hearing good reviews from people who have them on already.

And about the bottoming out, do you notice it rubbing in the front or the back over these certain areas? Is it just uneven roads or potholes that are the problem?

Rubbing - 99% percent of the time no rubbing! Just potholes and city driving. No issues really...

Re: My 2014 Jeep GC Build

UPDATE: Starting the plastic-dip process. I just finished the front end.
Here is a before and after. I really dont love the product, I'd rather paint them flat black.

Re: My 2014 Jeep GC Build

Here is a pic of the rear as well, I plastic dipped the lower portion of the rear lights and the step pad. I wanted to keep the rear red lights visible as I will be adding a few red accents in the future.

Re: My 2014 Jeep GC Build

Even if it's just Plasti Dip and it does lack that refinement, it looks 1000x better to me.

But what about those reverse lights on the backódid you just completely cover them with black dip and you're not removing it?

Re: My 2014 Jeep GC Build

Yes, I completely covered over the reverse lights and yes I'm going to leave them covered.

I will be adding some red accents throughout the inside and outside to tie the look together. If I wasn't adding the red I would completely tint the rear lights.
