Flat looks cool, but its not durable.

Shocks don't determine the right height, the spring does. Is it possible the spring was damaged during whatever caused the fender to be damaged?

How do you crease a fender without wrecking it?

As for the spring, Just replace all the springs and lift it. Sounds like a spring may have given out, it happens.

People use bed liner on the plastic all the time. I have seen ZJ's completely covered in bed liner. Its a pretty easy DIY job too.

Duplicolor makes a bedliner in a spray can.

Herculiner rolls on.

Or you can pay a shop to do Rhino liner or Line-X.

The cladding is just plastic, if you clean and prep properly it will stick just fine. Just like paint, the quality is in the prep work.

Search the forums, plenty of people do this, particularly on the ZJs.

I've seen it...it's an acquired taste. Not bad, but that much textured area makes the bottom half of the rig look very matte not shiny at all. I think in limited quantities bedliner is good. I did my rock rails in duplicolor bedliner and they are great. No damage and great finish quality. Unless you are building a trail rig, I think using Krylon Fusion paint on the cladding is the best bet.

Lastly, the 4WD works like this:
2WD: rear wheel drive
4WD Part Time: Use only on slippery/loose surfaces, never pavement. Locks the front and rear axles together. No gear reduction
4WD Full Time: sort of an AWD system. Splits torque 50/50 front/rear with an open center differential. Pavement friendly.
N: Neutral - allows flat-towing of the vehicle
4LO: similar to 4WD Part Time only adding 2.72:1 gear reduction. Front and rear axles are locked.

This info is in the owners manual as well as on wjjeeps.com (a great resource, spend some time there!)
