Lifted or Dropped?

I actually like both looks, but i'm not sure what would be more beneficial; if they're even differences in practicality or if its just for looks. I'm torn between either making my 05 WK look like the street menacing SRT8(exterior), or to just lift the damn thing and throw some wheels and tires on like the Jeep below. I wouldn't be using the Jeep for too much off-roading, but when I do happen to go off-road I know that the SRT side of my choice won't benefit. Still, the SRT look would be more sustained on a day to day basis, as it's my only vehicle and daily driver. Eh, just brainstorming right now but I figured i'd get some ideas, like the pros and cons of being lifted vs dropped. Pics below:






I figure if i'm not going to be doing too much off-roading, I should just drop it and make it look more street style? Lifted would definitely help with the snow season and the big tires would basically run over anything, but like I said i'm not really in the need of a lift, but I still like the look of both. Thanks.

A combination of the two...didn't think of that actually. I could get massive tires wrapped around the SRT reps too, lol. Hmmm...I think I need someone to photoshop that look lol.

That's what I was thinking! If you don't off-road much but do want to if the occasion arises, this is the best of both worlds. You can go with bigger wheels and high performance tires and still off-road as long as you don't get into real crappy stuff when you do.
