*money got tight (recession+college student=no modding) so after 3 years of no change, Installed 3" K&N cone, Flowmaster 40 series and (due to lack of funds) bought 4 Radial All Terrains off craigslist and painted the wheels black. Here is how it looks present day at 265,000 miles and still haulin'

just TT about an inch or so...nothing fancy, it's still my DD and don't have the funds for a 3" body lift OR the 33s I want on. Sometime in the future maybe. I used to have pictures of it out in Mexico following the Baja races and up in our cabin in Lake Arrowhead in the snow, but HD on laptop fried and they were all lost.


New pictures: Replaced all 4 control arms with Mevotech equipment with ball joints/bushing included. 4 ProComp shocks all around. 4 new rotors and sets of pads. full TT and shackled,sitting on 32x10.5xR15. Fixed an intake manifold vaccum leak Just got back from Baja where she gave a prerunner'd 07' Ranger a run for its money. below is a before and after shot.

Very nice Tenny! I'm curious why you only blacked out half of the headlights though

I actually only blacked out the side markers, and left the headlights alone.

so I have the front marker lights, the rear marker/brake lights, and the
third brake light blacked out....reverse lights too...

thanks man

:salute:

Offset -27 millimeters
Backspace 3.5 inches
 






the wheels are 15x8 and the offset i don't remember. i used to have mud tires and they stuck out past the flares a little. the 31s i have now seem like they don't stick out as far as my old mud tires did. i might get spacers but idk yet.

from what i gather from the tire shop if you go to a + 5 to + 12 offset on your wheel you will bring your tires past your flares about 2 "

#1: This is a picture thread.
#2: You don't need longer shocks unless you did a suspension lift; and the "correct shock" would depend on the gained height.
