Dropping mine at the shop in an hour or so for some new & additional lighting, and also throwing some endcaps on my home hacked up front bumper! Can't wait to pick it up tomorrow.

Adding HID headlights, HID 8 inch windshield lamps, and a big ol' Xmitter bar inside the top of the windshield (if they can build a shield to properly block the reflection).

Put in the Delta H4 quad bar lights.
Turned them on and instantly felt like a Civic owner.
Took them out.
Reinstalled the OEM lights.



(I may try and find a less "fake HID" bulb and try again...ugh)

For my heads, I picked up an HID kit from Xmitter. I obviously haven't seen them yet, but I went with pure white, as I just can't deal with the blueish or purplish tint in this kind of application. I'll show you on Friday and see if it's an option that might work for you.

I dropped my baby off at TeraFlex PLUS this morning for a TF long arm upgrade. Including 6" coils to boot.


(I "stole" the pic from thier website I hope they don't mind )

Yeah baby! I am totally stoked for this one, and I can't wait to get her back. Ideally, she should only grow about 1" taller than she sits now (based on my math and the 4" coil/spacer combo thats in her at the moment) but the amount of flex she'll gain should make for a huge difference in performance.

We're going to be in Moab for the weekend of October 10, 11 & 12. Sounds like as good of a place as any to exercise the the new suspension system.

They are on sale for just over 1700 bucks at the moment. I was going to wait until next spring to get the upgrade myself but ya never know if/or when they may be on sale again. You save about 80-90 bucks over the normal price. And then I am getting some trade in credit for the TF short arms that I have now.

I remember just before I did my gearing, teraflex plus was having a special to get the front and rears for right around 1200 bucks installed. I didn't jump on that sale and ended up paying a couple of bills more. Needless to say I was a little bummed that I missed the special, but ya live and learn I guess.

I think the 6" coils were just over $200 bucks a set. I don't have the parts list/invoice in front of me and they don't have the 6" coils specifically listed on thier website but all of thier other coils show a price of 215.99 a set.

Nothing with the jeep as I was out by myself. Just got some scenics and a dead cow. I got stung by a bee too...was a little upset about it.







Sorry that the last one is big, I wanted you to be able to see the deadness.
