    Spacers in the rear would bring the stance out more. Looks good though!

    Looking really clean. Looking forward to see what 5 lug wheel setup you are running now. Keep up the good work.

    Pictures are kind of dark -_-

    back when i was 4lug i didnt know much about stance or wheel fitment. and since ive gone 5lug ive pretty much stayed in "winter mode"

    will get some a post them up for you


    yeah i was still learning how to take pictures back then.. this isnt to long after i bought my first camera

    that pic is when i still had the low beam reflector dimmer thing still in the headlights. theyre even brighter now that i took those out. other drivers hate it.. but i love how much of the road is lit up in dark blue.


    zip ties my friend
