Looks like a good time!!! :thumbsup:

How did it perform off road for you?
 






Wow! Tee Hee You guys look like you had a great time out there! Very nice.

I really like your rig. The black & black theme is my Favorite! Some more lift and some bigger tires and your going to have some real good times in it.
 






It went better than I expected!... at first I thought it wouldn't be able to go to all the places I wanted but it almost did!...
I think that when i'll have the lift on it will go a lot better because the only place where i got stuck is because I was to low from the ground.
The brush guard definitely helped, otherwise I wouldn't have a front bumper anymore... as you can see on the pictures, it took some great punishment in the mud!..... this little bar at the bottom really rock!! :D
 






Looks like a heck of a lot of fun!
 












VERY COOL!!!!

BTW whose green ex is that? and is it lifted?

(oh and do those cragars create a wobble at high speeds? i really want a set.)

Actually they dont, i'm impressed! the size I went with is 16x8 and the tire size is 265/75/16... it rubs a little bit when I turn hard right or left and on reverse but it doesn't do it all the time. I'm really happu with the way it handles and everything.. I just cant wait to put the lift on!!!

The green Ex is my friends 3rd gen... he has the same lift as roadbully but he bought the plans from a guy in california.

Hmmmmm, was it goodguys in california?

What lift are you going with?

Tell your buddy to join!!!! lol
 






He's'not on the forum yet....
Im thinking about going the truxxx 2,5 lift. Or getting my friends plan and making it myself.
 












Do you know what his lift consists of?

Yes, i've seen the plans and it's exactly the same thing as the ones roadbully makes, 4 spacers over the strut making it 2.5 inches higher

What tires did you get and what did they run you? Im getting a set of cragars and just want a set of offroad/snow tires...i have a set of "highway" tires on my stock rims.

How much does he sell his kits?? and how long do you have to wait to get it??... I heard it was like 2 months wait!

I got maxxis big horn tires 265/75/16... I bought them 195$ cdn each.
They do a really good job offroad and there's just a little bit of rubbing when overturning and reversing. I love them!
