Big Red, not so big anymore...

So I decided to un-lift my Jeep. I did so because I never use it off road anymore and it's a waste of money on gas, so I sold all the parts and lowered it instead, loving it so far, here's some before and after stats and pics.
Sorry for the crappy phone pics.

Old Set up: (before)
-OME HD Coils
-Kevins .75" Spacers
-Procomp MX-6 Shocks
-265/75/16 BfGoodrich Mud-Terrains mounted on Silverblades

New set-up: (lowered)
-Eibach pro-kit lowering springs
-Bilstein HD gas shocks
-18" JK Sahara machine finished rims
-255/55/18 Toyo Proxes S/T
-Addco Rear swaybar
-Coming next summer: 20" SRT8 rims

Before:



After: (dirty, haven't had time to clean it in awhile)

Re: Big Red, not so big anymore...

To my eyes, it looked better lifted. Still a very nice GC but I just love nicely lifted Jeeps and yours was just that.
