      I read this before I clicked the link. I was expecting crack-pipe pricing. How is this still for sale at $3200? How much are LS's going for these days. Way too much awesome for a low low price.

      Lets clear up maybe some confusion here. 2015 is a completely clean break from 2006-2014 model years. It finally moves to the CD4 platform as used by current gen Fusion/Mondeo since 2013. This is a...

      Good summary but you've got this part backwards. Tall roll bars only fit under the soft top. That's why bethania garage, maker of the Hard-Dog roll bars, for example, markets an 'M1 Hard Core' and an...
