street jeep

since my gc never even sees dirt roads, i am considering lowering it 1.5" in the front and 1" at the rear. any suggestions or comments?

It already sits .5" lower in the front so you would essentially be sitting a full inch lower in the front giving you an extreme rake look. I would level it out if I were you and go 1" in the front and 1.5 in the rear.

Personally, I think lowered Jeeps just look goofy...

i think the lowered jeeps do look out of place the almost look fat and out of proportion. however there are some street jeeps out there that keep the standard height or use the up country lift (its also stiffer suspension) and put 17s or 18s on it with a nice pair of street preforming tires

this is just my opinion too though, if it looks good go with it
