KansasNoob Painted the back of the frame, filled up with cold weather washer fluid, and got new tires.

Ready for snow.

No air suspension, it's a static 2" lift on 32's, so overall about 3.5" higher than stock. Went with an Eibach kit which includes new shocks/struts/springs all around.

I didn't spring for the diesel, although that would've been nice if it wasn't over my budget. Reliability has been just fine, nothing much but regular maintenance thus far. It's my 3rd Grand Cherokee (owned 2 ZJ's in the past) so it's safe to say I love these things!

Triple8Sol Picked up a new rig last year. First pic is from last weekend up in Canada with 6" on top of the Jeep (no cargo box). Second pic is after getting the cargo box back on this week after getting wrapped.

I love it, 2.5" lift, 285's and rear e-locker. This thing has taken me places it probably shouldn't have lol. Beware though.... sometimes the lady folk get a little upset when you rob the running boards

My 2006 Honda CRV AWD
Simple, was cheap, and it is the first car that I owned on my entire life.

As I said I took both the professional and user online reviews with a grain of salt. I've had Blizzaks, I've had Hankook ipike rw11s, I've had Michelin X-Ice... These tires are worlds better.. They are spendy though...
The Finns know how to make snow tires! (keep in mind a portion of Finland is in the arctic circle, I think they know snow better than us)

I'm running studded Hakkas now, because we get a lot of hardpack snow covered roads in Alberta. Too cold for salt to work. These tires are GOOD...
