Ugly? I kinda thougth my always friendly demeanor on the trail was my calling card.

Hi-lined fenders would make no difference in my ride height. For normal wheeling I have about 4" of up travel with my front axle about 1/2" short of hitting my frame rail. Depending on pressure in the air shocks, I am at about 21-1/2 to 23" belly clearance, which is about right for 104" wheel base. The only way to lower the jeep would be to remove the 2" body lift. However, I like it since it allows access above the frame rail and everything is built around that offset. To lower the tub would require changing all cage mounts and doing some cutouts in the tub. I don't see it worth the effort.
