Re: New WK owner need some advice

If your in a place that has bad winters, you might want to stick with stock height so if you swap to stock wheels for the winter you will have more clearance. Thats why i recommended 22's. And they look badass compared to 20's on an SUV imo.

22" reps do look pretty badass. i keep mine lowered for the winter but i am going to swap back to my stock bumper if we are expecting snow. so far the winter predictions are looking good for leaving the srt bumper on all year!

Re: New WK owner need some advice

Thats good. I was thinking of getting the BC coilovers so i could slam it in the summer and raise it in the winter. Even if i slam it on the 22's i will still have a ton of clearance probably the same as stock suspension and stock wheels.

Re: New WK owner need some advice

first off welcome! and listen to these guys they know what they are talking about...

as for headlights, there are a couple threads on how to bake open and paint your own, to give it that "different" look i think you are looking for. I messed mine up cuz im an idiot and did it way faster than i was supposed to, so i ended up recently ordering a set of custom headlights from DC Customs, they do unbelievable work. there are many pics around take some time and figure out what suits you.

there are also headlight trim covers made by stillen those are a pretty sick look as well.

this site is crazy helpful and theres so many ideas and people who are willing to help...

Re: New WK owner need some advice

the other thing you might want to consider as well black is the weight of the larger rims and what extra stress that will cause on the spindles and other components. If you are going to go with the STR re pops make sure to look for a forged set if possible, they will weight less than your stock wheels even if you go with 20's or 22's as Madanio mentioned. As for the weather in Oklahoma I would be careful talking about not getting anything rough. OKC has been blasted the last couple of winters. Unless you are near the TX line you might get some of it too...
