I think it looks great! Its not what I would do to mine. And I definitly would never lower a jeep, but from the way it looks now I think it is pretty tastefully done up. And I hate chrome, but it works on that.

Man that is a clean looking ride. I like it.

Just my :2cents: on the ride-height thing: Put an airbag suspension in it rather than permanently lowering it, and buy a set of cheap rims with some All Terrains or Mud Tires. Then you can leave your 20's on during the week and drop the bags for mpg; on the weekend if you get the itch to go wheeling, air up the bags, install the cheapo rims with mud tires and do yer thang. You can't get too serious off-road with bags, but it's better than permanently lowering it and not being able to at all.

He saw all the Lifted Libbys on Long Island and made the right choice! (although it was one CLEAN looking Jeep)
