Thanks and yes they are Black Magics. Wiring them all up to ACC/On was a lot of fun but Omelet and his diagram helped me out so a big thanks to him.

For 4" you have 2.5 choices: Superlift, BDS, and Rustys, which is a Superlift with a couple extra pieces.

The BDS doesn't give you as much lift as the Superlift, especially in the front, but it has slightly better suspension travel in the rear (the wheel stays centered during compression as opposed to Superlift where the wheel comes forward slightly).

The Superlift gives you a full 4" of lift and has a better designed IFS portion.

I think one guy has the Rustys but I haven't heard a consensus on it yet.

For more info, check this thread out. The guy had a BDS then switched to Superlift, which he likes better: BDS 4" Lift - Page 11 - Jeep Commander Forums: Jeep Commander Forum
Nice photos

Re: The Official Lifted WK Thread

Having discovered this web site, I have a new appreciation for the WK. The pics on this thread reinforce that in cement!

Yea the options are ridiculous are the platform is great. Not so much with my Jinx lately but overall I haven't heard that many people on JG complain about too much. Hence the reason mine is called Jinx
