No Lift.

If you were able to get inside my brain, you would see quite the battle going on as far as the lift debate..

At this moment I am thinking an lsx swap is up next, but who knows.  I am a princess and I need air conditioning and the cost of an ls engine is pretty much the same as fitting an a/c system to my current junk, and the adapter plates and engine mounts arent much extra, so why not?? 

Likely nothing will change until spring breakup now.

I drive by your place almost daily (I live in the townhouses to the SE of you), I was wondering if you were involved with CJA at all.

Nice ride.

They are great.  I liked the MTR's I had before (old design) and they worked good, but the Toyos make less noise, and seem to have a lower rolling resistance than the goodyears they replaced.  Mileage seems to be the same despite a larger/heavier tire than the MTR as well.  The Toyos balanced real well as well.  They are heavy, but they last (from previous experience on other vehicles) and they are tough.

I am curious about ice traction tho..

yes, Johnny, I know..

Thanks for the comment.  I hope you havent seen my garage door open, what a freakin disaster behind that door.  The CJA is comprised of really good guys and gals, and I am sure you will be treated great by everyone..
