I feel the proportions are a bit off....perhaps raise it a bit. it will look a lot better.

It only look so. When I measured from the ground to the fender well, front and back is 29.5. When I measure from the ground to the bottom of the rocker panel in the front and back. Same measurement all around. I measured it more than one time because it looked off but is not. Thanks for advice.

What I would like help with is the door speakers wire color code at the amplifier. Upgrading the stereo system. This is what I have done so far. Infinity kappa 6.5 in the doors and a sundown Sa12 sub in a ported box.

From the factory, it's not square.
It looks off because it is off.

It would look better with a rake. A tiny bit higher in the rear

K. When I finish installing my stereo system and put in the subwoofer box by next week I will adjust it. Just don't want to make 2 adjustment within a 3wks. I always said the rear it need to raise a 1/2 inch but the measurements was the same all around. Thank for your advise and I will raise it very soon. I am really waiting on the stereo installation b4 I really start driving it. Thank you very much. If u can help ne with the amplifier speaker white color codes I would really appreciate it.

On the 3rd gen the front is not so easy. The strut is so long that u have to remove the lower control because it will not come out of the spindle. It looks easy.

Well I don't know what u defines hard but with my megan coils my ride is VERY close to OEM and EVERYONE who rides in my jeep love it. The Megan's with the 32 setting is the best.
