Re: New wheels and lowered

Looking at doing the same thing on mine, so how is the ride, any rubbing at all?

It does look great...

Where did you get the reps? Do you know what offset they were?

Jeep looks great. I have a white 2011 that I'm about to do the same thing too. How much did you have yours lowered if you don't mind me asking?

Re: New wheels and lowered

Hey @White6.4 - where did you have your jeep lowered? How difficult of a job is this? How long did it take? Do you have to realign once completed? Thanks

I had mine done at Auto Art in Glenview, they did it pretty quickly a few hours. I waited about a week and a half to two weeks to get it realigned so the springs would settle, but yes i did have to realign it.
