16. After a little testing we are pretty darn happy with the new, lower WJ. The wife is happier because it’s easier to get in and out of, and the Jeep feels more stable on the trail. On the downside, the front end sat a bit low so we pulled the front springs, removed the factory upper coil spring isolator, and added a set of Daystar spring spacers (PN KJ09111BK, $130). This lifted the front of the Jeep about 1⁄2-inch. So we now have a WJ on 33s with about 5 inches of lift up front and 4.5 inches of lift out back. Notice the slightly bent front axle? How about the lack of rocker guards? Hey, where is the spare tire? Guess what? We have more in store for this Jeep, so keep your eyes peeled for more Grand tuning in future issues of Jp.
