Question Lowered Renegade

What are your thoughts of a lowered renegade? I made some images to show you some examples.

Not a fan of it, but I might just be in need of seeing a real world example.

Buy a mini cooper if this is what you want. But that is just my opinion. I like the Renegade because it sits up higher. I would never lower it, maybe raise it but not lower.

Yeah, I'm not the hugest fan either - I do like the rims (a little large for this project), and I LOVE the blacked out accent pieces all around the vehicle. If you had a smaller rim, less of a drop, I think you could find a money spot!

I don't like the look of lowered cars. Any cars. Sorry.

A lot of people lower their cars, but the look just doesn't work for me.

Vehicles:
2015 Renegade Trailhawk - Silver (Glacier Metallic)
2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack
2014 H-D Road King
2009 Dodge Challenger R/T (traded)

You did a good job on the pics. Just not my cup of tea.
I like the raised look however.

It looks as though the car will have serious trouble turning without ripping the wheel flares off. If you plan to get the sport model and decide to opt against the steering wheel then this option would be great! I recommend buying this in San Francisco and driving it only one way ... East on Rt 80. When you get to NY get a fork lift to pick it up and turn it around so you can head back.

^ This.
I personally like vehicles which sit me up higher.

But I am sure there is a market for it somewhere.

I like the look of it slightly hunkered down on its suspension to take care of the wheel gap but I'm just not a fan of the dramatically lowered "slammed" vehicle.

I like a suspension that improved handling (slight drop) not ruins it for aesthetics.
