Since I will probably never take it off road and it is more of my every day driver .... I wonder if it would look ok to install eibach or H&R springs and lower it a little to give it a different look??

The roads are too freaking bad around here to think about lowering anything and change the ride comfort that I like so much.
Then there was the downed tree the other night after a wind storm that was only about 4" in diameter for the last 8' - so, in true Jeep fashion (and being lazy at 2 am), I drove over the tree without any problems.
I've driven a lowered Ford ZX2 for years now (sits on Ground Controls w/ Tokico struts). The only downside was the potholes and bumps, and of course, winter (I parked it.) The handling alone is worth it. With this new Jeep, it'll take me time to get used to driving something higher up, but I'll appreciate it during next winter.
I drove my lowered vehicle in the winter...was fun...lol...but a pain when we had lots of snow...and like people have mentioned, potholes, etc etc...I had lots of fun trying to fit in parking lots and what not, but handling was AMAZING on it!!! But IF I were to lower the jeep it definately would be a height that its EASILY driveable in winter, and to get around and in places
oh my bad so its a unibody?? well you could still throw on a bb boost for a hundred or so i dont know how much it costs to lower
