the first mod on my list was of course new rubber because winter was coming up and we were gonna be traveling over the mountains after a lot of researching i settled on the Falken rocky mountain AT-S partially due to price but mainly because of the good reviews so i picked up a set of 4 265 70 17`s for $800 bux out the door with certificates.

i installed my cai pretty quickly but had to wait a few days do the lift and lights. i saw a couple guys on here that had placed them behind their grille and decided thats where i wanted to place mine all it took was a couple short pieces of slotted angle and 4 bolts. the lift went on the following weekend with the help of my buddy matt pictured below.

Now i personally am not a fan of chrome or any shiny metal for that matter so when i was installing my hellas i also plasti dipped my grille as well as my side view mirrors and my rear hatch handle but unfortunately i dont have any pics of that.

unfortunately i didnt document a lot of things with pix when i did them, i finally broke down and spent the cash on a set of RC 1.5 spacers and installed a RH saguaro antenna mount. when i did the spacers i also had to do the front pinch welds because they were rubbing like a sob. i also pulled off the lower air dam before i had my tires installed and i just recently did the front door lock mod.

I found a rola on Craigslist locally for 100 Bux it had already been welded together and came with a red spider net so i picked that up.

I installed the switches for both sets of lights in the back of the driver cubby because my plan is to eventually get the s4xc switch panel.
