Heck for that price you could have just bought an optima

I totally need to do this, not a fan of chrome either.

after one jig saw, two grinders, a sawzall, and 2 hours i just took care of the pinch weld mod up front ... i attempted to re mold the well walls but that didnt work out as planned ...

also gave the new rims a nice fresh coat of paint and according to ups my spacers will be here tomorrow so hopefully the rims will go on then ..

To help improve the gas mileage I rotated the lug nuts once again as recommended per the regular useage maintenance schedule. When all was done I had 10 lugs left over - can't figure out where I went wrong. 2 of the wheels felt really loose. Will have to look at this closer tomorrow.

According to my tpms I am running around 40. Not sure how accurate with the lift but they are E range so I could go to 80 max if I wanted to

Seriously, how the heck do you get the cross rails off the roof rack?!?! I screwed the black screws completely off to release the metal plate underneath but I can't get the plate off...I asked on another thread and they said to pull out the metal pin but mine won't come off...even with pliers I can't get ahold of it enough to pull on it without them slipping off...what's the trick?

Well, heard Optima was going downhill. So didn't want to go that route.
