Thanks, mine is a 05 and my concern was just rim fitment as it only has one of the original tires (on the spare rim) I'll source tires that fit. As long as there still there in the AM seller asking $300 gonna try $250

I just got my rola too for a similar price I have thule bars holding it but I think it's too high in my opinion. I might sell or trade them for stock ones.

Removed my front swaybar all together. Sucked out brake fluid and put fresh fluid in. Did a carbon clean with some seafoam through the brake booster hose. Man what a smoke show! She was dirty...

Installed Painted Headlights with bulb and wiring upgrade;



Installed Matrix;


Installed Lower Grill insert;



I had to trim quite a bit from the lower grill insert for the 4XGuard front receiver,
otherwise it could remain almost completely intact for those who don't have the front receiver.

Nice!!!! Where did you get the expanded sheet metal for the grille? I've been looking for that exact same diamond pattern but haven't had any luck.

Check home depot, it'll be with the flat and round stock in the hardware aisle. Nobody that works there will know what you're talking about so just scan the area for a little and you'll see it.
