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.
