Oh right, another company that is very good. IRO popped of my head first because of the range of products for the WJ.

I just rode in an XJ w/ Zone 3". Not bad. Kind of trucklike. Better shocks would help. But yeah, for a 4", I'd go IRO, Zone, or Rusty's. Actually, I personally would go hybrid lift, but that turns out a lot more expensive.

Well, being a DD is all the more reason you need to buy a quality kit. You'll have to live with it every day at speeds up to 80 mph for thousands upon thousands of miles. Death Wobble doesn't happen on a trail at 6 mph. It happens on the expressway.

Your other question is extremely simple, go google it. The best place to buy rims and tires is the place that has what you like at the best price. There are hundreds of wheel choices.

Got into a little fender bender today. Car in front of me was yielding and I turned around for a split second to look around and by the time I turned back around he had stopped. I put the brakes to floor and was chirping the tires. Then I JUST barely tapped his car. I left a tiny bolt mark in the rear bumper from my license plate and a scratch about 2 inches long. He called the police because it was a rental car and the insurance for the rental car was in his name? (That did not make sense to me...) Police came out and looked around, he came over to ask us if we were okay. Everyone was fine, because it was just a little tap. When the officer came around to look for damage he had to ask if there even was any. There really was no apparent damage. The officer was very nice and friendly, was nice enough to explain what the process was. The guy I bumped was fairly relaxed about it all. The police filled out a "Non-Reportable Crash" form because the damage was negligible and it was not put into any system. I also did not get a ticket or anything like that. Just an exchange of information. The officer said there was nothing that I needed to do. I am hoping the rental car company (Enterprise) won't even bother doing anything because the scratch that occurred could have been from a suit case. So I guess that is it really. I was so VERY fortunate that no was hurt, and there was no real damage, it could have been much worse. All that happened to the Jeep was a little bit of a bent license plate. Any thoughts to if I should do anything as precaution or advice?

I would look into some adjustable front control arms. Any reason for new rims?

I told him the same thing. If theres any threat whatsoever of a claim get in contact with the person/rental car agency and offer to pay out of pocket... in the long run that small paint chip will cost alot less to repair than a jacked premium
