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

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.

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
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.
iPhone app user; excuse typos...thanx.
cut the springs? smaller tires? may sound dumb but you can get really low profile tires for 15" rims.
