    Lowered

    Anyone know if I can lower my 4x4 HIGH ALTITUDE KL?

    I have a cj3 and JKU... So the toys are no worry.

    My KL is a freeway 10 hour commuter each way. The most off road it sees is grass or a dirt road.

    Any thoughts?

    Yes. An inch or two closer to the ground for highway performance.
    Without screwing up the camber of the CVs.

    A little googling, looks like no one makes a kit for them.

    Lowering kits, in general, cup kits coil overs etc, normally ride like ass. I’d stick with stock if it’s your commuter.

    Jeep designed it to be as efficient as possible, meaning that every aspect of the vehicle is maximized for efficiency in its stock form. Generally speaking I’m not sure how a lowering kit would help on road dynamics. Lowering it wouldn’t change the drag coefficient of the vehicle.

    Now this being said I know NOTHING about lowered vehicles so if I’m totally wrong correct me, but from my general understanding of lowered cars it doesn’t change much

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
