Maxxis big Horn is good too, we had them a while back and dad squeezed 70k KM out of them

Lighting, and the fact you’re 114 years old.

Really? Zoom in...
These 114 yr old eyes are obviously better than yours Fezz... lol

100 percent just the lighting. the tailgate got dents, fenders got a nasty one, the bedsides have a handful of em but the wheels are still good haha.

Put some 2" spacers in the front, and shackles in the back. Got some discos too but they are way too long, need to return them or cut them down. If you look closely above the front tire you can see it popping up, hits unfortunately. Ain't much but it's a start.

Nice, looks good! Just that little bit of lift will be nice with some bigger tires. If you plan on 31s, prepare to cut and bumpstop.
My swaybar links still hit lol. Im at like 3.5" lift now since the front is sagged out, and there as short as they can be and they still crank my wheel wells occasionally, on big bumps, if I actually have them connected haha

Thanks man. Ugh alright, well I have plenty of time to prep myself for that. I just need to cut off about 2 inches and I should be good. I drove around the block with the sway bar disconnected, sketchy.

Just ordered a lift for my truck. The brodozering continues. Also picked up a set of OEM headlights so I can have headlights that don't rattle around

So my two friends and I are planning the logistics of a possible cannonball run in Summer 2019. We have already done all the eta's and time of arrival as well as being well into route planning, minor detail.. This is going to be across Canada. Its only been recorded once, and they had an average of just over 90km/h, and were stopped for almost 5 hours. So first thing is the car, and we need something that is far more efficient than fast, so i picked up an 06 TDI. its currently getting 1100km on the highway. As far as stealth, my biggest idea is to wrap the car as this...
Im taking down all sorts of information and considering everyone has thought of doing this at one point, id love to hear any ideas/suggestions you could contribute. Anyone have a valentine 1 for sale?

just a zone 4" radius arm lift. Certainly nothing special but I shouldn't be sawing the hell out of my inner fenders anymore. Especially when I put tire chains on. A buddy of mine has the same lift but in a 6" and said it was pretty good so I went for it.

Yeah you can bumpstop some if needed and just trim like the lower section, from the body line down. That's what I did with my 33s bumpstopped, a bit more but still, you get the point haha. You can keep stock flares and all that and it'll still look good, you'll just have to modify the fronts some.

And right now I daily mine with the swaybar disconnected, it's not too bad, not as nice as connected obviously though. I'm just offroad so often now that it's a pain in the ass to always connect and disconnect. I wish the Currie Anti-rock wasn't so expensive
