Sorry will post pic as soon as im done showing face at a wedding. She has about 145k miles donk out with 24" rims and a 5" lift. Im not a big fan of donks so she went under the knife used some spare drop springs I had laying around. She is sitting real low tucking 20's eagle alloy rims. Next im removing the cheap a$$ vent stick on. She's nice and shine but was a cheap a$$ paint job.

Absolutely

Muuuch better!!! It went from "hideous" to "mean 'n sexy" in about 6 inches!!
^^^ What Jedd said. Love them black and dewooded, and the mirror flashers are actually pretty cool too.

Looks great. You can easily stick a 10ft longboard inside. My 9'6" goes in with plenty of room to spare cwm1.

Just fold down the rear seat and drop the arm rest up front and you are dealin'

stay wet!
