    Am I alone in thinking my jeep sits way too high?

    I just want some other opinions from people that actually use their jeep. I enjoy the height because I never end up hung up or smashing shit under the jeep but I feel like it could definitely lose an inch or so of height and be perfect. From the front it looks good but from the side is where I just feel it sits too high. The tires are 37 12.50 17 STT PRO for size reference. With our west trip coming up it kinda has me worried about feeling unstable on off camber trails. I’ll post a few pics below of all different angles.

    What lift do you have?

    The high clearance fenders make it look high. But they help minimize rubbing and maximize up travel.

    How high are you? I doubt you ride any taller than Moby and Eddie hasn't rolled him yet...

    Looks like it sits about as tall as mine. I don’t see a need to lower it down unless you absolutely want to

    I see your thinking lol but definitely not. I would’ve used way better pictures than these I tried to pick the ones that bug me the most as far as how high it sits.


    The lift is a rock krawler 3.5. How should I measure how high it sits? Ground to rock slider? I just feel like everyone else on 37s with flat fenders doesn’t have near as much wheel gap and I got these massive air dams.

    It’s in the plans lol right now a front driveshaft is just needed more. Buying things as I need them most and I don’t typically get in situations where I need a winch

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.
