Wasn't difficult at all. Taking out my old pedal was a pain cause it was stuck. Ended up breaking one of the clips... but my new one fit in there perfectly! You should definitely get some other aluminum pedals as well. I'm glad I found some without writing on them such as ac schnitzer or something! Much cleaner look. It was just a pain having to drill into the brake pedal... When is yours coming in?

Pedals look good.

Just installed some TMS pedals in mine this weekend. Was much easier than I thought it would be! Brake pedal was actually super easy. Just gotta have the right drill bit.

Thanks! Yeah installation wasn't that bad. Compared with the gas pedal, the brake was just slightly aggravating... especially since I didn't use the right drill bit at first. haha. But then it was easy. i'm very happy with the outcome!

Thanks a lot


So I installed my rear Koni yellows. Waiting till my springs get here to install the fronts. But all I can say is Wow!! My rear shocks were DEAD. I was basically driving on wood blocks. Such an improvement both handling and the ride quality. Can't wait to get my fronts in!





My old shocks... Guess they gave up on trying to rebound

So threw on my new interior trim. Got so sick and tired of my wrapped trim. The wrap easily got damaged started looking really bad. So I got this new trim for an incredible price! I love the way it looks! We'll see how long it takes for me to get over this one... haha

Not bad! I prefer a lighter trim though. Gives a really nice contrast

BTW, I saw your insta pic from earlier. How was skydiving?!

Yeah I loved the contrast when I first wrapped it, but now it just looks too fake... I'm gonna try and score some Silver Cube trim this summer. But for now i'm really liking the clean look. It honestly makes the interior look newer.

Skydiving was awesome!! One of the best things I have ever done. haha. I already want to go again
