    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    17 vs 16" wheel/tire package will also make a difference. You rarely benefit from bigger wheels.

    I think for most people, the decision between Off Road vs Sport rarely hinges on suspension work. Most of that stuff can be easily replaced if you don't like it. The deciding factor is usually the other stuff like Locker vs LSD.
