What do you mean by beefing up the shock tower mounts? double plating with steel plates? bracing bolted in?




I didn't get a chance to bolt up the wheel and take picture this weekend unfortunately. But today the tint was installed and the grille was broken and falling out (like i've seen on alot of these cars) so I spent $15 and made a cheap fix of it that actually looks pretty good. Also, first pics without the roof rack as well.
