That will look amazing with proper suspension!

The tires are perfectly meaty, but it really does need a drop. 8)

I have to agree with dropopotimus.

A good 1 1/2" drop up front and shee will look sweet!

I went with Gun Metallic. 8)

A drop will be in the future. Just not sure what route I plan on going but either coilovers or springs will be needed. Still would like to get an exhaust and sway bars as well. So many mods so little cash on hand. :lol:

Save up for coilovers. It will be all around worth it.

For now I can handle the current ride height. It doesn't look to bad but will definately need to change in the future. I believe next on my list of big upgrades will be an exhaust system. Of course there will be minor things like hella supertones, HIDs, and other small upgrades along the way. Hellas probably this December 8)

I like that grille. Based on your other thread about rubbing issues, I'd say you are going to have to do coils over springs. From those shots it looks like the tires come all the way out to the edges of the fender which means rolling won't do much good. You are just going to have to have a suspension stiff enough to not droop into the tire.

Looks awesome though!

Luv the color you have going on and those wheels match nicely. Do you have any close ups? Those wheels look pretty flushed w/ the fenders.. which is a good thing :D
