Gotta be careful though... my uncle bypassed the heater core in his truck. Later, he got AIDS and died a horrible, shameful death.

Nice! I want lifty parts... but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get it up any time soon. I also want bigger rubber though. Can't have one without the other!

Im running 32s on a short arm lift. So. Maintenance id what im trying to work on right now.

At the risk of being covered millions of times, are you using adjustable/aftermarket arms? I've been looking into around a 3.5-4" lift and getting some 265/75R16's on the stock niner wheels. (About 32") the one thing I never see mentioned is if they will clear with stock arms and a tiny bit of trimming.

It's always "here's a lift with the tire size you're kind of looking for. It looks nice" lol.

Congrats, that's cool! I've done skills 3 times for auto in high school and college. (HS didn't go too well, though Ford/AAA I went National. College I went first year and got 4th overall, second year I let someone else go and did Job Skill demonstration.)

Quite the mash up of cars though

Haha yeah that's why I sat back the last year. Let someone else have the fun. In the Ford/AAA competition my partner and I finished 20 minutes ahead of anyone else with the troubleshooting competition. Nationals we got 23rd out of 50.
