PO welded on a homemade rear trackbar drop bracket that hit the gas tank at full flex. Since claytons LA design doesn't use a rear trackbar I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone and upgrade

adjusted the bump stops for the rear hatch and determined that I need a new latch, went to autozone, pepboys, o'rileys, napa & walmart looking for a replacement stereo dash kit since mine is broken and not a single store had one LOL

To all you guys with the I-6 autos, what do you average got gas mileage? I've got that set up with 185k on the clock. a 2" BB and 31" coopers averaging 13-15 mpg. Does this seem low? Or about right?

Thanks in advance guys.

Drove it t practice for my EMT classes tonight, I love new tires so smooth and quiet. wait til they get broke in though. I'm sure they will get louder. On another note, I ordered a 3 day pack from L.A. Police Gear today, thought it would work great for a pack for SRT team I'm thinking of joining soon, can also double as a BOB if needed. 30.00 cant go wrong with it, fella in my class picked one up a month or so ago and said he loves it, I like the quality of the bag along with the straps and places to store stuff.

It started to rain, so the front will have to wait to be done whenever it stops.
