Re: anyone lowered?

I'm lowered. Do a search on me and you'll see pics. My wife has a 2012 that isn't lowered so I did a few side by sides as well as measurements. Thanks and feel free to PM.

Re: 2011 2012 grand cherokee rear fog lights kit mopar oem

For what it's worth I had the taillight solutions kit on my 2010 GC SRT and loved it. My buddy installed it in about 10 minutes.

Thanks.

Re: Plasti’d

@clark. You going to try the clear over top the Plasti? I'd be curious to see how that looks, especially on wheels.

Re: Plasti’d

Thanks and agree. I'm on the fence with wheels. Don't get me wrong, I love that look, but not sure it's for me. I may do it during the crappy winter months and see if it grows on me and peel it off...

Re: Plasti’d

Re: Plasti’d

Thought about it, maybe over the winter. Was just concerned about wear and tear on the dip (rocks, salt in winter). I have plenty of dip left so may as well do something with it.

I smell a group buy. I'm in if we can get the price down. Since the owner posts here frequently I'm sure he'll see this and chime in.

Re: Removed Chrome Moldings

Re: Summit on Eibach springs

I'd just be cautious of the ride quality. Going from stock to Eibachs was a leap forward but with the Eibachs you have a much different spring ratio so chopping, even slightly, may have a more...

Re: Summit on Eibach springs

Thanks. I'll take a few more pics after the next wash, you more than likely won't see too much of a difference with the naked eye.

Re: Summit on Eibach springs

Hey five.7, you measured lately? I've put about 300 miles on mine and it settled down some more, not much (maybe 1/4 inch), but definately settled over time.

Re: Summit on Eibach springs

Ha, agreed. Pictures don't do it justice. It's very subtle. Kind of like that "there's something different about that GC, but I can't put my finger on it" look.

Re: Summit on Eibach springs

^^ Absolutely. It looks incredible. Waiting for my wife to get home from work before pics. She has a 2012 also so it'll give better perspective to folks on the fence.

Re: Plastidipped rear Jeep logo

I want to black out the entire chrome bar out back but am concerned that it will either mess up or won't look right around the rear window button.

Nice work, looks good.

Re: Summit on Eibach springs

Eibach does their homework so the comparison isn't that far off in my humble. Have had them on my last few cars (sans the Corvette) and they simply don't disappoint.
