Pics** higher or lower air-ride set-up?

dont know how to make a poll,
I have the airide adjustable links.

the daytime pics and one night pic are my raised setup at normal ride heightImageUploadedByJeepGarage1413537368.663744.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1413537445.547462.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1413537461.831610.jpg

(backround info: im 24)
2mpg increase w/ lowered setup and much smoother ride (on small bumps & city driving)



what looks better?

Re: Pics** higher or lower air-ride set-up?

Personally I think all the WK2s look better with less wheel gap, so lowered gets my vote. And how could you turn down a 2 MPG increase and better handling too?

And that background info was important for us to know.

I'm sure this has been discussed,will the 275/55/20 go on my 2012 Overland with the air suspension with no rubbing? How far off is the speedo? Is the 275/55/20 more narrow of a tire and taller?

cool,
its rubbed maybe once in the year ive had it, just looks like a dark rubber smear on the inside of the fender liner.
it looks both tall and wide which i wanted because i was going for an off-road look.

next tires are going to be the same width 275 but much less sidewall maybe 275/4x because i want a lower profile tire now, i dont offroad ever so dont see the need for big sidewalls these days.

it it a tight fit with the tie rod end? being about a fingers width away from the top of the tire but at all vehicle heights it stays the same and doesn't touch.

oh and the speedometer ppl here have said 2-3mph off but I haven't noticed

Ditto. Jeep wheel gap is way too high for someone who is just driving on street. They should have option for upgraded suspension for people like us who hate wheel gap.
