i just been flat out with work, and lifes been pretty crazy of late, so just fixxing up the rough edges,

but unsure about the whole off road thing, it seriously needs lift if im going to,

so my options are 6" lift and a set of 38"+ tyres or dropit low and 26's rims :)
cause ive seen both and they both look pretty crazy

How are they set up are they coils all round? I reckon it would look sweet with some lift and fat tyres!

unfortunatly got leafs again in the back, but they are sprung over the 9" in the back so thats helps abit, i cant wait till i put it on gas,
ive got a couple quotes for lift kits and they arnt cheap :( and having dual shocks in the front dont help with the price at all

so cause he had to go quickly i get out my haggleing skills and got a good deal,

there about 8 grands worth of reciepts for the last 14 months of everything hes done and replaced, so i figure i got a good deal
