WK looks nice. I can't justify lifting mine so it will stay the same height. And my gf said no, I have a wj and cj that I get to work on.

Thanks guys. My girlfriend actually wanted the lift...so how could I say no.

But I still got the Cruze. My girlfriend drives the WK.

Just holler at me sometime about the springs/shocks. I'm still feeling it out, so we can talk about it.

I wanted to lift it just as much, too. Plus the stock stuff was waay to soft. Don't know if that's how it normally was or if the struts were on their last leg. Lots better now with the stiffer springs.

get coilovers. the adjustability of them makes ride height, rebound and stiffness have endless possibilities.

Seriously thinking about it now. One of the reasons for wanting to keeping the springs at first was because I thought I would have at least had the axles geared and locked already. So it was more of a budget of time than anything. But the timeline has obviously gotten pushed out. And with it probably getting done when it's warm, I'd rather do it big. I'm looking over the Fox coilovers right now.

Thanks man! I got them from BJs Offroad. They were like $500 for everything. I'm actually thinking about getting the 100W HID upgrade kit. It would make the 35W HIDs look like nothing. Kind of want to get with the 170 LF's when I get a new bumper though.

Don't exactly know what the plans are for the bumpers. Definitely thinking about getting BTF or Essentially Offroad to fab up some new ones for me.

Let me know what goes down with your WJ.
