I'm gonna be lifting mine and doing a basic audio install. It seems to be pretty dead here though so you aren't gonna get many responses. Lol.
 






I still have my 03 Limited, but my son drives it now. In the last year or so I noticed flaking paint on the hatch. I sanded it down, substantially. Sprayed it with some custom mixed 2 stage paint. It’s still a bit of a work in progress, but much better. Put the 20s back on it for the summer.

Its coming,
had to acquire a couple of things, check dimensions, stock pile parts,wiring, and a game plan. That's enough hints for now.

Looks good! I have to do a lot of painting this year lol rusting inside and out
 






I think my next move will be going to mud terrain tires. The Terra Grappler all terrains don't really provide much traction. I hope to get a set of five mud terrain when the Nittos wear out, and a used matching OEM 17" wheel for the spare. I will be doing five wheel rotation instead of four.

Lol I’m in the same boat waiting for my cooper at3s to wear out before I upgrade my wheels

I must say, after doing the lift, I used 2" blocks instead of 3 though. Deer do not stand a chance anymore.

Prior to my lift, I had one dent a fender, one took out the front grill and header, and one took out the front grill and headlight and another fender.

After the lift. I caught one at full 55mph, never got a chance to hit the brakes. ( I won't go into specifics, but the A-Hole behind me with highbeams on and then went to pass me, I wish would've caught this one)
Anyway had a chuck in my tow hooks, and only damage was to lower bumper cover where the fog lights would go. I didn't have any in at the time.
