I saw Crested Butte's snow gauge (camera) yesterday and it was reporting 16" at 4pm. I can't wait to see what it says this morning.

like the idea but fogs wont give good light that high up, maybe mount them low on the front. but if you put HID's in your projections will never notice them.

how did you mount them?

ball joints where a bear... i had to make a spacer on the lathe to get them out as the press would not touch them... after i got the knuckle off the pegs on the ball joints just flopped around, they where shot! be sure that they go in strait that is clutch... i rented a ball joint press from o rileys and then the 4x4 adapter kit from autozone... just the ball joint press will not work... after the nuckle is off it is prety much press out old press in new... ther is a great how to online i snagged and used... the tie rods where a bastard... went though a whole can of propane on them... (was out of map gas)

got the pads and rotors in a ebay auction... 2nd set we have got from them (my buddy has them on his Evo) they are powerstop though... really nice!
to check them if your wheel moves around if oyu push on the top or bottom while the wheel is off the ground and it moves at all, bad ball joints... i got a complete kit for tie rods and ball joints on ebay as well for 99 bucks! well worth it!

Wow, that's awesome. The snow is still coming down slowly but it is melting. Still not quite cold enough and suppose to be 60 of Thursday.
