Drive her in the snow. With all the snow caked on my fenders and my tires flush it looks LOW.
Some guy was complimenting me on it today too. Makes me feel good.
Anybody else get the first snow yesterday?

No snow here luckily. I put my coils all the way down today. Helper springs are gone, too. I'm talking to someone right now about getting Mtech II bumpers and I think my exterior will be good after that. I doubt I'll be able to get a lip for it without just dragging the ground. Haha.

Cosmos Intake, Stett Silicone Boot and I'm about to order FCABs/RTABs and Rear Shock mounts from RE. I also have the VANOS seal/rattle kit, cooling system refresh stuff (w/ stewart pump), Redline Fluids and a bunch of other preventative maintenance stuff along with a RE SSK sitting at the house. My baby is gonna have a good day if I ever make it out of Afghanistan!
