Strange to me. Used to coilovers. I guess to lift one you could just do longer shocks and bigger coils?

Nope, not me, no fog lights yet. Too busy too worry about that for that one yet. Still working on carb issues. No time to mess with accessories like that yet.

Spotted this beauty in St. Augustine. Would be a great project. And an awesome tow vehicle, IMHO.

The only thing, obviously wrong with it was pretty funny. The tank you see in the bed, thru the window? That is his fuel "cell". that was like I said the only obvious thing.

So this looks like it came straight from the factory with four doors. They never did four doors until JK's right?>



I saw this at the physical therapist next to Ihop in Fleming Island.

That looks good. Some knobbier tires and it would look really ready to roll.
