The correct factory color name is: Gunmetal Pearl Coat! I have one but it's the Classic edition! I like the color too because it shines and looks good on a bright sunny day/ certain times of the day! haha!

By the way it looks great, lets see some more pictures!

Thanks! I'm glad you knew the color because I've been meaning to find out what its called so I can do touch ups. I was iffy on the color when I bought it but it has really grown on me.

You sir are correct! However, when I put the JK shocks next to my stockers, there was hardly a difference in length I've seen multiple write ups and they all say they are longer but for some reason mine aren't. Might need to get different shocks if they limit my flex.....

Thank you! The Moabs are the best looking rim out there for the 97+ cherokees in my opinion. Totally worth the extra $$.

What do you guys think about the stance? I have to say 3" for 245/75s looks just about right.

Did you measure the actual lift you got from the kit?

Well it had 2" blocks under the leaf springs and a 1" coil spacer in there before I put the Rough Country kit on so I didn't measure from that. I'll have to go measure and see what the difference is from what stock is supposed to be.

And I think the stance and tire size is perfect. It sits higher in the back than the picture looks.

^^^ Thank you! From the center of the rim to the fender, I measured 21" in the front and 21.5" in the rear. This is with new full leaf packs.
