I'm calling fake, at least on the drop. How on earth did they manage to get that much negative camber on the front wheels?

I hope it's faked but you never know I have seen a dropped 4 door wangler before. Had a Mexican flag painted on the roof :-(

That it's a straight axle vehicle, there isn't such a thing as camber unless you got some f***ed up parts.

There's no camber adjustments that can be made on the Dana 30 front axle or the 2WD axle tube unless you get adjustable ball joints. The problem with that is they usually only offer 2.5* or so of adjustment, and that Jeep is running more than 2.5* negative camber.

Unless he has a custom IFS setup that allows more camber adjustment or custom steering knuckles, there's no way he would be that low with that amount of negative camber on a stock front axle.

Can't we all just get along here....
Who cares? Remember one crucial thing: Every person that Mods their Jeep (WJ in this case) is building and cultivating the supply and diversity of aftermarket parts market. This guy that slammed his WJ may not be a true believer, he may even be blasphemous with this action, but(if you'll allow me the metaphor) he prays to the same "god". Give him a break.

Case in point: On-board air compressors: The air-bag market drove innovation and the convenience of size and on-demand use that Off-roaders demand today!

Eagle eyes?

If so I have the same ones. I've had them for a year and they really make the front of the car look much better.

Is it broken?

Blasphemous? You are assuming way too much.I get what you are saying, that he is driving small enterprise and capitalism, but it is still ugly to me and it's only an opinion. Relax, your sphincter is way too puckered. :-)

That's what I have, but mine aren't dark. It's only a 10-15 minute job, but I hear you.

On the topic of trickery in the case of the dropped WJ, I'd think it would take a fair bit of work to get it that low. Custom ifs? Durango ifs with drop spindles? 2wd with a custom bent tube? The possibilities are endless really.
