Re: Progress on the diesel

I really love the look of your ride. I am curious to hear more about your ride now after you put those springs on. My main complaint of the ecodiesel is the ride, I came from an x5. I am hoping that some of these upgrades will improve it. (new wheels/tires, springs, shocks, and sway bar)

more pics please!

Re: Progress on the diesel

The ride is very smooth. It really handles awesome now. No body roll what so ever. And the braking is now insane! I love it! I'll get more pictures once I wash it.

Re: Progress on the diesel

Any more pics of your Jeep with the road magnets installed?

I'm just antsy to see all the lowered WK2s and make myself green with envy.

Thanks! But no they didn't. I used 1.25" spacers to clear the brembos.
