Any reputable tint/graphics/vinyl shop should be able to do it..

I had it done when I got my front windows tinted and the roof/tails wrapped.

I'm sure you mentioned it before but what size tires and what kind of rims do you have?

Nice looking jeep! I got black limited and getting the chrome n trims painted next week before throwing on my 22x10.5. I was waiting to get reply on how they fit but the rim dealer told me 10.5 all around fit with no problems

The offset is +38 clears everything even now that I'm lowered on road magnet mid drops with 305/35/22 tires all around. Never have any rubbing full lock or over large dips.

And I won't need any spacer to fit the brembos either with this setup.

Do you have any more pics of your stock altitude wheels and 1.25" bora spacers after the mid drop springs were installed besides the ones you have posted on this thread already? Looking to get a better idea of where the sidewalls end up so I can decide what thickness of spacer I want to do. Pics sighting down the side from front or rear would be awesome if you took some! Thanks

I don't but don't go bigger than a 1.25" spacer. The 1.25 is almost too aggressive to begin with.

Yeah I was thinking probably 0.75" or 1". Thanks

you can't do .75 or 1" without having to shave down your studs. 1.25 is the minimum that will clear the wheels without having to modify anything.

Ok that's tood to know. Do you think the track was too wide with the 1.25" spacers and factory wheels to run the aggressive drop (1.8") springs in the front and the mid drop (1.8") springs in the rear? This is the route I decided I want to keep the slight rake, low front, and still look level and not squatting with a load on the rear.

I know that all sounds good but I would stay away from the aggressive springs. Just from personal experience I think you are going to have issues down the road with that aggressive drop up front. It is going to wear out components so fast and you will definitely bottom out the struts constantly. I know it looks great but the ride suffers dramatically and you'll be kicking yourself for doing it soon after. That's why so many with agressive springs switched back to mid drop and that's also why mid drop are always on back order and aggressive are widely available. Plus you are going to have issues with alignment with the aggressive springs. You really need to be looking at air ride setups if you want to run that low. Springs with that much of a drop are just bad news. Might as well just cut a few rungs off your stock springs if that's what you are going for.
