Yeah that's what I planned. I wanna do it right the 1st time. I'm thinking JBA 4", but that's really expensive. I figure by the time I save about 4k for that lift my warranty will be up (picked the truck up the last week of August and I already have about 7k miles on it). So until then I'm gonna level it. I think there's a few leveling kits out there, I just have to do some searching.

JeepN4KC, that looks good. I haven't seen many WKs lifted, but I like! Don't blame ya for wanting the skid though lol

Musclez - the KK airdam is so thin it doesn't make much sense why they even have one. I know what you mean about the exposure. I think yours looks good either way. It's a different rig, but I took the airdam off the WK after lifting it. It is a more substantial piece and would probably get anhihilated when wheelin. I like it better without it. I definately want a front skid plate, though . . .


Yes you are correct... and DAMN that air damn is HUGE ! lol

How did you get around the screws that have the air dam connected to the front fender?

The air dam is only connected with plastic rivets. Just rip them all out (you won't be able to take them out without breaking them or twisting them up unfortunately, you can always buy new ones).

You shouldn't have to "rip" anything out. They should just be quarter turn plastic pieces that attach the airdam. The plastic rivets come out without ripping them apart, as well, and can be reused.

Simply pull those 3 twist tabs and pull on corner away from the bumper.

It scared me too but just be gentle youll see it pull away.

I kept one hand on the bumper one on the valance / air dam and pulled away.

But what about the black screws that go into the bumper and wheel well? Are they just ripped out?

There are no screws going through the air dam, at least not on my 2008 sport. the only thing that holds it in is those 3 plastic clips that you can just turn and pull to remove. It doesn't really take any force.
