Trying to decide if I should lower my jeep.. What do you think?

I like the stance of the SRT8 but dont want to do the full body conversion

here's a current pic. WK/file-1.jpg
Anyone have suggestions on the best way to go about it? :confused:

Re: Lowered??
you would need new tires if you are going to lower it

Re: Lowered??
how much you want to lower it? you could keep the front where its at and throw a SRT rear spring in the rear of it to level it out that way, or you could swap the front and rears out completely for a serious drop of an inch or more. my only concern being that you live in denver is the weather. how bads the winters out there? id imagine in some parts you probably get a foot or so on a regular basis? you want that front bumper to become a snowplow? plus you lower it, youll lose that ground clearance so exploring the mountains and trails in that area (which im sure theres a shitload within a couple hours of you) kind of goes out the window.

just a couple questions to ask yourself.. i mean if you daily drive it and dont go anywhere when it snows a shitton, hell lower it and slap some 20s on it. want some ground clearance? drop the ass end with some SRT springs and run a set of 20s and it will still look legit

Re: Lowered??
There are times where we can get a foot or so on the roads and i do like being able to plow past the idiots in little sedans...

I was looking at the Eibach Pro-Kit which shows roughly 1" to 1" inch lower.

Curious. What size tires are on there now?

Re: Lowered??
How did you black out your stock wheels, going to do mine that way until I can get some 20" reps????

Re: Lowered??
plasti dip or just get them coated in gloss or satin black...

Re: Lowered??
Yeah, lower it with some nice low profile tires. It would look bad a**!

Re: Lowered??
Had them painted at the collision center I work at- pretty heavy gloss. They turned out great! Low profiles tires might be a good option!
