Re: Lowered My Jeep over the weekend

If you use your radio for any reason (drive in theater, perhaps?) don't replace it with a shorty. They get terrible reception. Good look, bad function.

Re: Lowered My Jeep over the weekend

I have had two different shorty antennas one was about 4" and I had another that was about 12". Both were terrible at the drive in. It's the only time I listen to terrestrial radio so it could have just been the drive in's signal, not sure. Just wanted to mention my experience with them.

Re: Lowered My Jeep over the weekend

I've been thinking about a shorty antenna but have been worried about the radio as well

Re: Lowered My Jeep over the weekend

Yeah picked up a cheapy 10 dollar 13" antenna from pep boys today, it does look alot better.

It does have a rear spoiler, i'm gonna assume it is by mopar, the kit was actually on it when i bought it used. I kept asking the salesman, if it had ground effects on it because it just sits different than all the others, he kept saying no. Wasn't until i joined our old website that members pointed out that the previous owner hooked it up with the mopar body kit.

Re: Lowered My Jeep over the weekend

I know I was pleasantly surprised, however if I could do it all over again I would have gone with a hemi and put a bodykit on it. Oh well hindsight's 20/20. My little 4.7 has decent pickup with my mods. More of a grand tourer than a drag racer I guess you could say.

Re: Lowered My Jeep over the weekend

So after a little over a week of driving I've noticed that the rear passenger side sits about a half to a quarter inch higher than the driver side, and the front passenger sits about a quarter inch higher than the front driver side. Is that normal? I never have anyone else riding with me, do you guys think that maybe the driver's side has settled faster than the passenger side, or should lift it up and take a look at it? My parking space is on a bit of a hill so it leans towards the driver's side when i back in, maybe that has something to do with it? I took all my measurements on level ground. Any thoughts would be great. It's been like 100 degrees the last few days, otherwise I would have jacked it up already.

Re: Lowered My Jeep over the weekend

That's normal from what I hear from others. It's because of your Gas Tank. It makes it sit a bit lower on one side.
