    This would be a great thread to keep going. My next mod would be to replace the saggy springs and shocks, and replace them with some new pre lowered stuff. I do not want a true lift because I do not have the money and I also need good gas mileage as I do a lot of driving.

    We have a section to post up what you did or are planning to do
    As far as lift, you will be very disappointed if you don't do a " real lift" trust many who have tried and then had to spend more on redoing everything
    You can not buy " pre lowered springs" etc anymore
    Plus having a lift and larger tires does not mean you kill your gas mileage if done right.
    I just pulled over 22 mpg yesterday on a 250 mile trip
    mines the black one so has " some " lift etc

    Taking a blind shot at a target but I ordered an export tail lamp wiring harness hoping it fits and works to finish out the rear fog conversion. I also found some potential new candidates for LED bulbs in the rear if they're as power as they claim they are.
