H&R are a good brand and will be better than cutting your stock springs... Is your Jeep like a white mailman Jeep? b/c that will prob just look sick if it is sitting at mailbox height.

At least Jeeps are still being used to deliver mail somewhere. All I see now are those box mobiles. Good luck on the lowering, hope it suits your needs

These will work well for your use. Kinda pricey but it is a limited market so I'm sure you were planning for that.
I love how they did not even reword their page to make it Jeep specific.

" In addition, the lower stance gives your Jeep Wrangler a MUCH nicer look, as it detracts from the “on stilts” look in favor of accenting the length and curves of your Wrangler’s body."

Last time I checked Wranglers do not have curves.

"Such situations include having unusually large wheels and/or tires, having shocks that already lower your vehicle to a certain degree, or having an unusually low body kit installed."

What is an unusually large tire? For a Jeep I think that is anything above a 37 (IMO 40's look wierd unless they are low COG or choped finders) I also did not know they made body kits for Wranglers.

"Approaching steep driveways and large speed bumps at an angle (aka angling) may be required in order to prevent scraping the bottom of your Wrangler."

A stock Wrangler has what 18" so even with the "super low" 3 inch drop that leaves you with 15" of ground clearance that is one big speed bump.



PS not making fun of PO that want lowering springs (because he wants them for work) just making fun of the webpage. Have you tried looking at half doors for it and leaving the upper door off as this would lower the window and would be cheaper.

I had a 5.9 Grand Cherokee and I wanted to drop it too but nobody makes a kit to lower a Jeep. Not even a Grand 5.9.

those mall bumps are hard core stuff.

if you lose 3 at what point on a tj are you bottomed out. on a Jk you go three down you are into the bumps from stock. the ride would horrible. even if you cut the bumps and the mounts to tem you would be hitting in other places.

It would be better to get smaller tires. put some clown car wheels on it like some 26" or so tall. will be much cheeper

Stock TJs practically scrape the ground anyway. Not sure you can go much lower than stock

How about doing a 2" budget lift on the front only?

Revived after 2 years?! Eh...dude didn't need to lower it, half doors are 2" lower at the window, he could've reached the mailbox just fine with the window unzipped or off.

cut the springs? smaller tires? may sound dumb but you can get really low profile tires for 15" rims.
