    02 lx with 5 lug swap, and 3 inch lift. Need to get some adjustable upper ball joints.
    I kept rear drums, just swapped in different rear hubs. Might do rear disc conversion later.

    Yes, doing the Rocky Mountain Rambler 500...
    last year we modded up a rear ended 98 accord.

    I kinda like that this didn't need as much work, and maybe give someone else the bug

    Note, that i used the read hubs for V6 3.0L with Rear Disc Brakes from 1998-02 Honda Accord.. they work fine to swap in and retain the drum brakes.

    Yes, going to change out the front bumper since larger tires don't like it, and add in some under belly protection as well.

    Have plans, but will see how many get done in the next year. For this years RMR500, it'll be pretty tame.

    I guess Ill be do for pics in a week or two...

    Biggest challenge so far is the rear rubbing/bottoming out. Rear strut is 2" lowre, and subframe also dropped... Working on adding a lower strut mount spacer - similar to what you might find for a Chevy Truck with a 2" lift.

    Also got a new front bumper that's for a jeep :) Haven't mounted that yet as it'll take some time to modify it to "fit".
