...Lowering springs, rallye bumpers... Did I just wonder into the wrong forum or something?
What I've done so far: Skid plates, 2" lift, modified front tow point, rust proofing (for some strange reason the bottom of the vehicle got a few dings during last summer...).
Next: proper tires (looks like Yokohama All-Terrains in 225/65/17), more recovery gear for solo travel. Might possibly spring for rock sliders at some point, maybe. I have
to sort out some way to get my sound system to play mp3's one of these days, but there doesn't seem to be very good solutions (remember guys, euro head unit) for that and I've been occupied by other matters.
Haven't yet sorted out where I'll put my full size spare once I upgrade to those All-Terrains - it probably won't fit under the cargo space floor? I might get a roof rack, or just strap it into the cargo space. Dunno yet. A tad fuzzy on the specifics of the recovery gear, too - for example I might get a shorter Hi-Lift or I might go for a manual winch. Hi-Lift would theoretically have more possible uses, but in reality I doubt I'd do that much lifting with it. Ramps to help drive over rocks? They'd have to be fairly small to be handily portable, though, and that would probably limit their usefulness...
